(August 19, 2010) – The Fort Wayne TinCaps are making 2010 Midwest League Playoff tickets available for purchase this coming Saturday, August 21st at 10:00am (EST) in anticipation of the TinCaps qualifying for a playoff position.
“The team is currently ahead of both Lansing and West Michigan in the race for the playoffs,” stated TinCaps Vice President of Marketing, Michael Limmer. “The team is up 6 games in the standings with only 19 total games remaining in the season. While the team hasn’t yet clinched a spot, we wanted to give fans a chance to reserve their tickets as we anticipate post-season games.”
The first TinCaps home playoff game would be Wednesday, September 8th with a 7:05pm start time as well as a post-game fireworks display. “We’ve started a tradition here at Parkview Field to kick off the playoffs with a bang, literally,” said Limmer. “So, the first game will be capped off by a great post-game fireworks show and will include many of the TinCaps great in-game promotions throughout the evening.”
Additional playoff games, dates, and times will be announced and available for purchase as soon as they are known, which in many instances will be short notice. “That’s part of the fun of the playoffs,” said Limmer. “You don’t know where, when, or even if you’ll be playing from day to day. Last year we just kept rolling and ended up with a championship. You never know what will happen, that’s what’s so great about post-season baseball!”
Tickets for the Fort Wayne TinCaps potential first home playoff game (Wednesday, September 8th at 7:05pm), which will include a post-game fireworks show, go on sale this Saturday, August 21st at 10:00am (EST). Tickets can be purchased by phone at (260) 482-6400, at the Parkview Field Ticket Office, or by logging on to.
