Press release from the TinCaps:
TreeTops Tickets Open to Individuals for Opening Weekend
TinCaps make exclusive rooftop party area available to individual ticket purchasers during Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Opening Weekend, Tuesday Nights All Season Long
TinCaps fans can now get a Wrigley Field experience without leaving Fort Wayne, and at a Fort Wayne price. For Opening Weekend, including Friday, April 17, Saturday, April 18 and Sunday, April 19, fans can purchase individual “all you can eat” tickets in the Treetops Rooftop area. The TinCaps will also be having “Treetops Tuesdays” allowing the rooftop, which is primarily a “groups only” area, to be available for individual fans on Tuesday nights all season long.
“We had a lot of people calling, asking how they could get up on the rooftop for a game,” said TinCaps President Mike Nutter. “It became clear that there was a lot interest in this section, so we wanted to find a way to allow those fans, not coming with larger groups, to experience this unique area.”
Individual tickets for Treetops will be $32.00 each. The price includes a rooftop ticket, along with an all-you-can-eat menu consisting of hot dogs, bratwurst, hamburgers, chicken breast, and rib tips. Sides include potato salad, baked beans, fresh fruit along with 3 other side items, unlimited soft drinks, and two desserts including a signature TinCaps apple crisp. Food and beverage service will begin 30 minutes prior to each game’s start time and continue through the end of the seventh inning. All food will be cooked fresh on Treetops own made-to-order grill.
“This will be unlike any other picnic that fans have ever experienced in Fort Wayne,” commented Brad Shank, Director of Groups Sales for the TinCaps. “All food will be cooked fresh on the rooftop and the menu will rotate so that a new entrÃ©e will be served every couple of innings. Bring your appetite!”
Among the most distinctive seating locations at Parkview Field or anywhere in baseball, the Treetops rooftop area offers fans a unique view of the action on the field as well as of the crowd below. All food and beverage service is right on the rooftop and available to rooftop ticketholders only, so fans will never need to go far from their seats. Treetops packages will be limited to the first 200 fans per game on a first-come-first-served basis.
The Treetop Rooftop area at Parkview Field is modeled after the rooftop seating areas that overlook historic Wrigley Field in Chicago. While Wrigley Rooftop packages in Chicago are typically $175 to $225 per person for a similar all you can eat package, the TinCaps are able to offer a similar experience at a fraction of the price. “Our goal was to offer a “Wrigley Rooftop” atmosphere, while keeping it affordable for our fans,” said Shank. “And the views here are even better, you won’t be across the street, you are still right in the ballpark!”
Treetops packages and all TinCaps tickets can be purchased on-line at www.tincaps.com or by calling the TinCaps offices at (260) 482-6400. Those interested in reserving Treetops for a group of 50 or more can do so by calling Brad Shank, Director of Group Sales, at (260) 407-2801.
