News release from the TinCaps:
TinCaps to Hold National Anthem Auditions for 2019 Season
Tryouts at Parkview Field on Feb. 26, Feb. 27, and March 2
(February 11, 2019) â€” Opening Night 2019 for the Fort Wayne TinCaps is coming up on Thursday, April 4 (7:05 p.m.) at Parkview Field. But before the first pitch of the season is thrown, the National Anthem will kick off the new year. With that in mind, the TinCaps will be hosting auditions to perform the National Anthem at games throughout the season.
Singers, instrumentalists, and groups are welcomed to try out. Auditions will be held at Parkview Field on Tuesday, Feb. 26 (4-6 p.m.), Wednesday, Feb. 27 (4-6 p.m.), and Saturday, March 2 (11 a.m.-2 p.m.). Those interested in trying out MUST schedule a tryout time in advance by contacting Rachel Lopez at 260-407-2808 or email@example.com. Note that in recent years all tryout spots have been filled within 24-48 hours. Therefore, if interested in auditioning, schedule a tryout slot as quickly as possible.
Keep in mind that not everyone who tries out will earn an opportunity to perform before a game. Tryout participants will be evaluated by musical representatives from County Line Church of God, First Missionary Church of Fort Wayne, and Hope Missionary Church, as well as by TinCaps staff members.
Those who are selected to perform the National Anthem at one of the team’s 70 scheduled regular season games will receive four (4) tickets to the game at which they perform. (Click here for the team’s 2019 schedule.)
Single game tickets for the 2019 season go on sale Wednesday, Feb. 13 at 8 a.m. Fans who purchase tickets in person at Parkview Field on Wednesday from 8-10 a.m. will be treated to a free breakfast buffet in the Suite Level Lounge. Meanwhile, season ticket plans and group outings are already available. More information is available at Box Score.
