Tony DesPlaines joined the TinCaps as an intern prior to the 2004 season and now has the title of Creative Director. He is responsible for all printed materials the TinCaps produce, including the pocket schedule, magnet schedule, Hospitality Guide and gameday playbills. During TinCaps home games, Tony is the in-house DJ providing all the in-game music and sound effects.
Tony graduated from the University of Dayton in 2003 with a degree in Sport Management. Tony is originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and would someday like to return there. In the meantime, he roots for his beloved Brewers from Indiana. He currently is enjoying the life of an untethered single man in Fort Wayne.
One thing about Tony that TinCaps fans don't know is that after his senior year in college, he went on a month-long road trip and saw seventeen Major League Baseball stadiums, five Minor League Baseball parks, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and the Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa.
