The Fort Wayne TinCaps are the Class A, Midwest League affiliate of the San Diego Padres. Since 2009, the team has played at Parkview Field, which has been rated the top ballpark in Minor League Baseball by Stadium Journey. While the ballpark in Downtown Fort Wayne has averaged more than 400,000 fans per season, it's home to far more than baseball. The TinCaps and Parkview Field host more than 700 non-baseball events every year. In 2016, the TinCaps earned Minor League Baseball's top honor, the John H. Johnson President's Award for organizational excellence.
