TinCaps to give 2,000,000th fan a chance to win $2,000,000
Strong end of season attendance builds to 2,000,000th TinCaps fan milestone

(August 23, 2013) – The Fort Wayne TinCaps are going to give one lucky fan at Parkview Field the chance to walk away with $2,000,000 as the team counts down to their 2,000,000th fan. This promotion will mark the TinCaps potentially welcoming their 2,000,000th fan to a TinCaps game at Parkview Field sometime before the end of the 2013 season.

“It’s a true testament to the support of this community,” stated TinCaps President, Mike Nutter. “We had so much fun celebrating our 1,000,000th fan back in 2011 that we wanted to up the ante for number 2,000,000.”

When the regular season and playoff attendance totals for the 2009 (404,418), 2010 (407,394), 2011 (379,067), and 2012 (408,044) seasons were tabulated the TinCaps total attendance stood at 1,598,923 – putting the team 401,077 short of the 2,000,000 mark. With four regular season games and a minimum of one post-season game remaining on the schedule the team is currently 25,286 fans shy of reaching 2,000,000.

“We knew, based on previous years, that if we had another great season of fan support we could be at or around that number at the very end of the season,” said Nutter. “We are going to pull out all the stops to break the 2,000,000 mark yet this season and reach that number of 401,077 for 2013.”

On the game that the TinCaps break the 2,000,000th fan milestone one lucky fan will be chosen with the help of Advantage Specialty, the specialty firm the TinCaps have entrusted with implementing the two millionth fan promotion. That fan will participate for the $2,000,000 following the game.

“We will reveal more details as we approach the milestone game. Part of the fun of this promotion is the element of surprise,” stated Nutter. “We can say that the TinCaps 2,000,000th fan can be from 2 to 102 years old and still have a chance at taking home the $2,000,000 jackpot. You won’t have to hit a home run or throw 100 miles per hour.”

The team returns home next week for the final three-game series of the regular season, with games Saturday (7:05pm), Sunday (7:05) – both with post-game fireworks – and a special Labor Day Monday Family Feast game (1:05pm). The team has already clinched a post-season berth, with their first home playoff game scheduled for Thursday, September 5th at 7:05pm with Fireworks and the usual Thirsty Thursday™ beer specials.

Team officials estimate the milestone will be broken at some point before the end of the 2013, barring extreme weather that might cancel or postpone a game. Anyone present at the milestone game, with a valid TinCaps ticket, will be eligible to be selected as the 2,000,000th fan.

“It gives a whole new meaning to ‘must be present to win,’” said Nutter. “It’s fun to think that our two millionth fan could walk out of Parkview Field that night a multi-millionaire. We hope it happens and can’t wait to see who ends up with the opportunity. Good luck!”

Tickets are still available for each game of the TinCaps remaining 2013 schedule. Tickets can be purchased at the Parkview Field Ticket Office, by calling (260) 482-6400, or online at TinCaps.com.
