Blue Jays’ season ends early after Irish sweep

Matt Odegaard was one of Plato’s walking wounded in a difficult 2019 season. He saw only one plate appearance in the Region 7C playoffs last week.

It was a summer in which the Plato Blue Jays just could never get quite right – and the Region 7C playoffs were no exception.
Beset by one injury after another as their 2019 campaign unfolded, the defending Class C state champions are done for the year after being swept by Green Isle in the best-of-three opening round series against the Irish, a heated rival of the Jays.
In a season that saw Plato lose key contributors Matt Odegaard, Nolan Lepel and Adam Prehn to one trauma or another, the Blue Jays lost another in the playoff round as Mitchell Pinske injured his arm in Game 2 of the eventual sweep.
