FORT WAYNE, Ind. - The Fort Wayne TinCaps are looking for fans to be the star of the team's 2012 television commercials. The team announced Monday that they are looking for TinCaps fans, friends, and families to be a part of their "It's All About You" promotional campaign.
"It only makes sense to involve and highlight our fans," said TinCaps Vice President of Marketing, Michael Limmer. "We truly wanted to make it 'all about you' this season and what better way than having them be the star of the team's commercials. We're looking for TinCaps families and groups of friends to show how excited they are about their hometown baseball team."
The TinCaps have partnered with Fort Wayne-based production company, PUNCH Films, for the commercial shoot. "This is the fourth year we've had the opportunity to partner with PUNCH Films and we're excited about this fan-centric concept," stated Limmer.
