TinCaps Set New Attendance Record

(September 7, 2013) – The Fort Wayne TinCaps set a new franchise attendance record Saturday night. Including the regular season and playoffs, 410,459 fans have attended a TinCaps game at Parkview Field during the 2013 season. Although the TinCaps lost, 7-5, Saturday night, there is still the potential for two more games to be held at the downtown ballpark if the TinCaps reach the Midwest League Championship series.

This is the second straight year that Fort Wayne has set a new franchise attendance record. Last year’s attendance of 408,044, broke 2010’s mark of 407, 394. Saturday’s crowd of 2,486 gave the TinCaps the largest playoff attendance among Midwest League teams to host two games, with a combined total of 6,863.

“We are so thankful to our great fans, the City of Fort Wayne, and the San Diego Padres,” said TinCaps President Mike Nutter. “Our fans have wholly embraced the team and the unrivaled experience of attending a ballgame at Parkview Field, the city has given us tremendous support, and the Padres have put a playoff-bound team in Fort Wayne each of our five years downtown.”

Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., argued in response to Cutter’s email. “The sequester will cut 2.3 percent, or $85 billion, from the massive $3.55 trillion the federal government is projected to spend this year alone. To put that percentage in perspective, we borrow that much money every 28 days. If the President can’t cut that much, he’ll never cut anything.”
