Fort Wayne, IN - The Fort Wayne TinCaps are set to host Military Appreciation Night at Parkview Field on Wednesday, June 12, at 7:05 when the TinCaps take on the Lake County Captains.

Thanks to sponsorships and donations, the TinCaps are giving away free tickets for Military Appreciation Night to military members, the families of military members, and veterans. These tickets can be requested prior to Wednesday's game through TinCapsMilitary.com.

Also as part of Military Appreciation Night, the TinCaps will wear special red, white, and blue jerseys, which will later be auctioned off for fans on July 5. Proceeds from the red, white, and blue jersey auction will go toward Honor Flight Northeast Indiana. In addition, organizations from around the Fort Wayne community that offer services for military members and their families, as well as veterans, will be present during Wednesday's game in Parkview Field's Lincoln Financial Event Center.

Sharon Eichman of the Fort Wayne Area Blue Star Mothers (the TinCaps' community organization of the game) will throw out the ceremonial first pitch on Military Appreciation Night, while Fort Wayne City Council President Tom Didier is scheduled to sing God Bless America during the seventh-inning stretch.
