Would you believe that this was our children’s first time at a baseball game?! You can’t visit Fort Wayne without attending a Tin Caps Game at Parkview Field, so we embraced the opportunity and made an afternoon of it!
What kid (or adult for that fact) doesn’t love spending the afternoon at a ball game? Grab some treats and settle in for an exciting afternoon!
If you love baseball, you will love attending a Tin Caps game. The quality of baseball, in our opinion, is as good as you are going to get at any professional venue at a fraction the price!
With tickets starting at just $5, it’s a real family event that even includes a small splash pad to keep the little ones happy during innings.
I would recommend coming early and taking advantage of all the children’s activities that they have and the various food vendors.
We conquered rock walls…
Built lego and even got to take a spin on their bouncy castle!
Fun Fact: When the team opened their stadium in 2009, they opted for a name that paid tribute to their famous former resident, Johnny Appleseed. They named the team after the tin cooking pot he would often wear on his head in a backward fashion, resembling a baseball hat. Of course, you can’t just have his name without the trademark apple, which made it to their logo!
A special thanks to Visit Fort Wayne! The 5 Globetrotters were invited guests of Visit Fort Wayne. As always, all opinions are our own.
