FORT WAYNE, Ind. - The Fort Wayne TinCaps are proud to partner with the OmniSource Corporation and Steel Dynamics Inc. to welcome military personnel to Parkview Field for Military Appreciation Night on Tuesday, May 26, when the TinCaps host the Great Lakes Loons in a doubleheader starting at 6:05 p.m.
Through the generosity of the OmniSource Corporation and Steel Dynamics Inc., the TinCaps, and caring individual donors, complimentary tickets are currently available for military families, both active and veteran, to enjoy that night's games.
"We are proud to partner with the OmniSource Corporation and Steel Dynamics Inc. to provide military families the chance to be our guest on Military Appreciation Night," said TinCaps President, Mike Nutter. "This is the seventh consecutive year we've welcomed military to Parkview Field in this way and it's even more meaningful given the recent return of the 122nd Fighter Wing from their six month deployment. Our hope is that they can enjoy a TinCaps game with their family as our guests."
"The men and women of our OmniSource and SDI family are proud and honored to be a part of this celebration for our courageous United States military heroes," stated Russ Rinn, President & COO of the OmniSource Corporation. "We all know that because of them, we live in freedom."
The TinCaps continue their partnership with the Northeast Indiana Military Assistance Network (N.E.I.M.A.N.) offering military in attendance the chance to visit kiosks highlighting many of the support organizations and offerings available to military, active and veteran, in our area.
TinCaps players will be wearing commemorative jerseys, and special military recognition will take place during the game. The TinCaps also will wear these patriotic jerseys on the Fourth of July. That day, the jerseys will be auctioned off, with proceeds being donated to Honor Flight Northeast Indiana.
Military personnel and their family who are eligible to request tickets to these games can visit TinCapsMilitary.com for more information. Tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies are available.
