Press release from the TinCaps:
TinCaps eclipse franchise attendance record
Mark falls for second straight season
For the second time in as many seasons at Parkview Field, the TinCaps set a single-season franchise attendance record. A total of 384,866 fans have come through the turnstiles of the downtown ballpark this season.
“I can’t thank our fans enough for supporting the team throughout this season,” TinCaps president Mike Nutter said. “The atmosphere at Parkview Field this year has been electric. We’ve worked hard to create a great experience for the fans. To have folks respond the way they have is extremely gratifying.”
Friday’s crowd of 7,936 sent the season total past the old record of 378,529, set last year in the inaugural season at Parkview Field. Three games remain on the TinCaps’ regular-season home schedule.
The TinCaps hit the road for a seven-game road swing, then return to finish the home slate with a weekend series against the West Michigan Whitecaps (Class-A Detroit Tigers) September 4-6.
National entertainment act QuickChange is set to appear on Saturday, September 4, with a postgame fireworks show to follow the 7:05 p.m. game. On Sunday, September 5, the game is scheduled for a 7:05 p.m. start with an appearance by Jake the Diamond Dog and a post-game fireworks extravaganza. Monday, September 6, is Fan Appreciation Day with the game beginning at 3:05 p.m.
