Fort Wayne, IN - In the five weeks leading up to Parkview Field's 2013 Opening Day on April 11th, baseball fans around Fort Wayne will need to be on the lookout for TinCaps mascot, Johnny, for a chance to be pre-qualified to win the $5,000 Opening Night prize. The TinCaps have partnered with business locations around Fort Wayne for a scavenger hunt that will provide the opportunity to win a number of TinCaps-themed prizes, including tickets to the first home game of the season at Parkview Field.
Beginning March 4th, the TinCaps will be using their Twitter and Instagram and email accounts to launch the scavenger hunt. Clues will be given out each day during the week, directing fans to a specific location within city limits where they will find a large wall decal, featuring a picture of Johnny TinCap holding bags of money. When fans find that decal, they must take a picture of themselves with Johnny and submit it to the TinCaps. Methods of entry include tweeting the photo to the TinCaps, using the hashtag #TinCaps when posting to Instagram or by emailing the photo to Johnny@TinCaps.com.
Each week for five weeks, one winner will be randomly selected from among all submissions. These five winners will automatically advance to the jersey-winning stage of the $5,000 giveaway contest on the TinCaps' Opening Night. Each weekly winner is guaranteed two tickets to Opening Day and a game-worn red TinCaps jersey.
