Military All-Star baseball team begins tour through Minnesota

Posted:

ADAMS, Minn. (KTTC) -- A national tour of military personnel is making their way through Minnesota, and they are getting ready to play a little baseball.

The 23rd Military All-Star team made a stop in Adams Thursday on their way to Austin where they will be playing Friday night.

The team is assembled to help support active soldiers and their families - and bring everyone together to enjoy America's national pastime.

While the team travels to many locations across the country and the world, the Minnesota leg of the tour is already proving to be a highlight.

"Minnesota has a great history of these community ballparks, town teams and we're really happy to be a part of it," explains Commander Crash Allvord, the founder and general manager of the U.S. Military All-Stars. "I'm really thinking Minnesota's going to be a big part and up to the top of our visit because the people here are great. We have a lot of former players that live in the area that are actually going to come out and join us and play."

The team wrapped up a game at the Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa, earlier this week before starting the Minnesota tour this weekend.
