FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- In advance of single game tickets going on sale on Wednesday (Feb. 12), the Fort Wayne TinCaps have released their promotional schedule for the 2020 season at Parkview Field. The TinCaps have a jam-packed calendar of promotions that begins with Opening Day on Monday, April 13 (6:05 p.m.), and includes celebrity appearances, brand new highlights, and a Minor League Baseball-high 29 postgame fireworks shows.
In 2020, Parkview Field will welcome Leslie David Baker a.k.a. Stanley Hudson from The Office on Friday, July 17, as well as WWE Hall of Famer Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat for Pro Wrestling Night on Friday, Aug. 21. Two players from the Indianapolis Colts will also be in attendance for Colts At Bat on Thursday, May 14. Another date many fans will be sure to circle on their calendar is Sunday, July 5, when the first 2,000 fans to enter Parkview Field will receive a Fernando Tatis Jr.bobblehead. The San Diego Padres star shortstop played for the TinCaps in 2017 and, at just 18 years old, set the franchise's single-season record for home runs.
The TinCaps will host their first ever Sensory Friendly Game on Tuesday, July 28, when fans can expect softer music, more spacious seating options, and other accommodations to support families who are affected by sensory-processing challenges. Other new promotions for the 2020 season include several group trivia nights, plus a theme night dedicated to fans of Jerry, Elaine, George, and Kramer. On top of that, the 'Caps are also introducing coffee to their season-long lineup of beverage tastings. Meanwhile, the team is still offering many of its most popular past promotions, like Star Wars Night, multiple Princess Nights, Comic Book Hero Night, Wands and Wizards Night, and visits from national entertainers like Jake the Diamond Dog and the ZOOperstars! As previously announced, 2020 will also feature the debut of other new promotions, such as Paws and Claws Nights on Wednesdays and Días de La Familia, when the TinCaps will take on the identity of Manzanas Luchadoras for select games.
The TinCaps' 70-game regular season home schedule runs through Labor Day (Sept. 7). Along the way, the team is home on the Fourth of July, Father's Day, and during the Three Rivers Festival.
