News release from the TinCaps:
BIG FUN Culminates on Fan Appreciation Night
TinCaps Will Wear Jerseys Featuring Photos of Fans
(August 22, 2014) – The 2014 season at Parkview Field has been one of BIG FUN, and the TinCaps want to thank their fans for their amazing support. That’s why Friday, August 29 will be Fan Appreciation Night at Parkview Field when the TinCaps host the West Michigan Whitecaps (Detroit Tigers) at 7:05 p.m.
This year, the TinCaps would like to show their appreciation on their sleeves – literally. You may remember back in July the team asked fans to “like” or comment on a post on the Fort Wayne TinCaps Facebook page requesting to have their picture put on special BIG FUN jerseys for Fan Appreciation Night. Yes, photos of fans will be on the jerseys the TinCaps wear that night. The jerseys also say “BIG FUN” across the front instead of the usual “TinCaps.”
