The Plato American Legion Baseball team is in a familiar spot today, State American Legion Champions in Division 2. Plato won the title in 2012, and would go on to finish 3rd in the Central Plains Regional. They’ll try and improve on that this time around.
In the State Tournament this weekend Plato would be Foley and St. James on the way to the title. Nolan Lepel and Levi Vorlichek hit Back to Back Home Runs in the 9-1 win over Foley in the Semi Finals. Tanner Grack threw a 1 hit shutout in the State Championship Victory over St. James.
Plato advances to the Central Plains Regional Tournament in Milbank, SD. Plato starts off the tournament facing the South Dakota State Champion-Madison, SD. The Tournament starts August 7th.
