Press release from the TinCaps:
TinCaps Adjust Game Time on July 19th to Coordinate with Three Rivers Festival Fireworks
Team changes game time from 5:05pm to 6:05pm to coordinate end of ballgame with start of fireworks finale
The Fort Wayne TinCaps are adjusting the start time of their game on Sunday, July 19th. Originally scheduled at 5:05pm, the team has moved the start time back an hour to 6:05pm. The Three Rivers Festival Fireworks is scheduled to begin that evening at 10:00pm.
“This new, later start time will provide a much better flow to the night’s activities,” said Mike Nutter, Fort Wayne TinCaps Team President. “We expect the ballgame to end between 8:30pm and 9:00pm. Fans are still invited to take part in our usual Sunday, post-game events like Run the Bases and Player Autographs before the fireworks. We also will have live music on the centerfield amphitheater between the end of the game up to the start of the Three Rivers Festival fireworks show at 10:00pm. Parkview Field is a great vantage point to watch the fireworks and we are excited to have a game that coincided with the Festival’s finale.”
All tickets currently printed for the Sunday, July 19th game are valid for the new start time of 6:05pm. The gates to Parkview Field will open 90 minutes prior to game time at 4:35pm. Only fans with a ticket to the TinCaps game will be allowed inside Parkview Field during the night of the fireworks finale.
“We are excited to be a part of the Three Rivers Festival and the downtown fireworks finale,” stated Nutter. “We encourage people that would like to take in a TinCaps game, and have an awesome seat in downtown for the fireworks show, to reserve their tickets soon.”
Tickets for the game are still available by logging on to TinCaps.com, by calling the TinCaps at (260) 482-6400, or by visiting the Parkview Field Ticket Office at the south entrance to the ballpark. Ticket Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00am till 5:00pm.
