The Fort Wayne TinCaps will celebrate Christmas in July on Friday, July 31st as the Beloit Snappers come to town for the start of a three-game series. Gates open at 5:35 with the opening pitch set for 7:05pm.
Not only will the Beloit Snappers be making their first appearance to Fort Wayne this season, but Santa Claus will make his Parkview Field debut. Santa will be taking his seat on the centerfield concourse where he will be greeting fans and posing for pictures.
The Fort Wayne TinCaps will be partnering up with the Marine Toys for Tots by collecting gifts and monetary donations at the gate to help bring Christmas hope to a child in the community. Fans are asked to donate to this charitable cause by bringing a new unwrapped toy to the game.
Along with Toys for Tots, the game will feature the Salvation Army bell ringers, Christmas food specials, and special Christmas-themed activities, including the Bad Apple Dancers debuting a new dance. The park will be spreading a little Christmas cheer to the fans as well. The first 1,500 fans will receive an Applebee’s beach bag giveaway and the entire crowd can end their night with a post-game fireworks show.
Come celebrate Christmas with Johnny and the best team in professional baseball as the TinCaps continue on the quest for a record-breaking season. To purchase tickets, Box Score.
