Parkview Field to Host High School & College Games in April, 2021
29 Games Featuring 46 Different Schools
Fort Wayne, Indiana (March 20, 2021) — Before the TinCaps begin their season on May 4, 2021, Parkview Field is set to host a record number of high school and college baseball games. From April 2-29, 2021, the downtown Fort Wayne ballpark will welcome 46 different schools for a total of 29 games.
“The amateur baseball talent around the Fort Wayne area is truly better than ever,” said TinCaps President Mike Nutter. “After missing out on last season, we’re so happy to give local kids the chance to play on the same field that’s produced MLB stars like Fernando Tatis Jr. These games will also to be helpful to our staff as we ramp up to the TinCaps season.”
Since opening in 2009, Parkview Field has hosted amateur games nearly every year, though the games scheduled for 2020 were canceled due to the pandemic.
The High School and College Baseball Series at Parkview Field starts on April 2, 2021, with Purdue Fort Wayne taking on Northern Kentucky in a Horizon League series. Other area colleges competing include Indiana Tech facing Grace College, and St. Francis versus Marian University. Meanwhile, all 12 Fort Wayne high school teams are scheduled to play, too. Additionally, 28 other high schools from the region will be on display as well. See complete schedule below.
Tickets ($6) go on sale March 24, 2021, at ParkviewField.com. The Parkview Field Ticket Office also will be open for ticket purchases beginning one hour prior to each day’s first pitch. All transactions must be completed by debit or credit card (no cash). The TinCaps plan to utilize a special seating chart to account for physical distancing between pods of fans. Ballpark concessions will be available as well (no outside food or drink is permitted.)
