Have Your Hero Honored at Parkview Field

FORT WAYNE, Ind. - The Fort Wayne TinCaps, along with OmniSource Corporation and Steel Dynamics Inc., will salute our military throughout the 2017 season and need your help.

All those who serve our country, or have served, deserve to be saluted. The TinCaps are looking for nominations of active or veteran military personnel to honor at games. If you have a friend or family member you'd like to see honored at Parkview Field, then let the team know.

Selected nominees will be rewarded with VIP treatment at Parkview Field. This includes tickets to the game for them and their family, and recognition on the field before that night's fireworks show.

The TinCaps ask that you submit a short essay explaining why the community should know about your hero's story. Submissions should be sent to TinCaps Vice President David Lorenz (lorenz@tincaps.com). You can also call David at 260-407-2815.  

"Honoring the men and women that currently serve or have previously served our country is the least we can do," TinCaps President Mike Nutter said. "We're glad to have this special opportunity at Parkview Field to give these heroes the spotlight and thank them from all that they have done and continue to do."

Through the generosity of the OmniSource Corporation and Steel Dynamics Inc., and caring individual donors, the TinCaps also invite all members of the military and their families to attend Military Appreciation Night on Tuesday, June 27 (7:05 p.m.) when the TinCaps host the South Bend Cubs. Complimentary tickets for that game can be requested at TinCapsMilitary.com.

The TinCaps will wear special patriotic jerseys on Military Appreciation Night presented by OmniSource and Steel Dynamics and on the Fourth of July. The jerseys will be auctioned off on the Fourth with all proceeds benefitting Honor Flight Northeast Indiana.

Tickets are available online at TinCapsTickets.com, by calling 260-482-6400, or visiting the Parkview Field Ticket Office.
