Drone footage shows aftermath of fire at iconic MN baseball field



A YouTube user uploaded drone footage showing what the grandstand at Tink Larson Field looks like following a Wednesday evening fire.

The blaze started Wednesday evening, burning through the concession stand and jumping to the wooden grandstand.

The Waseca Daily News reports the investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing. Waseca's fire chief mentioned to the Star Tribune the field itself appears to be mostly spared, even though the grandstand is ruined.

There's an effort to raise funds to help rebuild the grandstand, with an account set up through Roundbank. Click here for details.


The field’s namesake is a baseball legend in rural parts of southern Minnesota.

KSTP notes that Tink Larson, who also cared for the field himself, is a member of 11 halls of fame, including the Minnesota State High School Coaches Association Hall of Fame and the Minnesota State High School Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame.

The field itself is well known throughout the region and state. Its grandstand included seats from Met Stadium, the original home of the Twins.
