Press release from the TinCaps:
Thursday Night Crowd of 5,779 at Parkview Field Includes Record 2,375 in Walk-up Ticket Sales
Fort Wayne TinCaps welcome record number of fans purchasing tickets at game. Team encourages print-at-home and pre-purchase options.
July 16th was a record night for professional baseball in Fort Wayne as 2,375 fans purchased tickets for Thursday night’s TinCaps game at Parkview Field. The overall crowd of 5,779 enjoyed a beautiful night for baseball, with clear skies and temperatures in the mid-70s.
Team officials, while ecstatic about the turnout, encourage fans to plan ahead when heading out to Parkview Field for a TinCaps game. “Obviously, on a night with over 2,000 people purchasing tickets at the ballpark there will be some time spent waiting in line,” said TinCaps Vice President, Brian Schackow. “We encourage fans to take advantage of their ticket purchasing options before heading out the ballpark. Fans can log on to TinCaps.com up to two hours prior to game time and choose the print-at-home option. This allows fans to bypass the ticket window altogether and walk right up to the gate with their tickets in hand. We receive a lot of positive feedback from fans that are already using this feature.”
There are a number of day-of-game ticket buying options. “Fans can also purchase tickets over the phone by calling the Parkview Field Ticket Office at (260) 482-6400,” said Schackow. “If they know earlier in the day that they are coming to the game, they can visit the Parkview Field Ticket Office. We also encourage fans to purchase tickets early once you select a game date. There is always a chance that your game could sell out, so purchase your tickets and secure your seats.”
With games throughout the weekend, the TinCaps are anticipating great crowds. “We encourage fans that want to avoid waiting in ticket lines at the ballpark to plan ahead,” stated Schackow. “Eliminate the need to wait in line by taking advantage of our pre-purchase options. Whether it be online, by phone, or in person, we have an option to take care of every ticket purchase need without the need to wait in line.”
