Opening Day Crowd Sets a Record, TinCaps Fall

Opening Day at Parkview Field was a record-setting day. Not because of anything that happened on the field, but because of what happened at the field. The announced attendance of 8,577 fans was the highest figure in the four-year history of Parkview Field. That’s a great testament to the fans of the TinCaps that came out to support the team on Thursday night on a brisk evening. On top of that, the TinCaps drew the most fans out of any non-Triple-A team that had an opening day game yesterday. Baseball America the full numbers here.


Here’s a look back at some highlights from last night’s 4-3 TinCaps loss to the Lake County Captains. I’ve also included a snippet from my conversation with Fort Wayne Manager Jose Valentin.


If you’ve ever got any questions about the TinCaps that you’d like answered, please send them my way. I would love to include a mailbag section in the blog and the podcast. You can email me at or tweet me @MikeCouzens.


There’s a story to be told as to why I’m linking to Nancy Sinatra singing “Sugar Town”, a song that I wasn’t aware existed until yesterday. Will I tell that story some day soon? You bet. Stay tuned.

In the mean time, Nancy…take it away!
