Military Appreciation Night At Parkview Field

The Fort Wayne TinCaps are proud to partner with the OmniSource

Corporation and Steel Dynamics Inc. to welcome military personnel to Parkview Field for Military Appreciation Night on Wednesday, June 15, when the TinCaps host the Lansing Lugnuts starting at 7:05 p.m.

Through the generosity of the OmniSource Corporation and Steel Dynamics Inc., the TinCaps, and caring individual donors, complimentary tickets are currently available for military families, both active and veteran, to enjoy that night’s games.

“We are proud to partner with the OmniSource Corporation and Steel Dynamics Inc. to provide military families the chance to be our guest on Military Appreciation Night,” said TinCaps President, Mike Nutter. “This is the eighth consecutive year we’ve welcomed military to Parkview Field in this way. Our hope is that they can enjoy a TinCaps game with their family as our guests.”

“The men and women of our OmniSource and SDI family are proud and honored to be a part of this celebration for our courageous United States military heroes,” said Russ Rinn, President & COO of the OmniSource Corporation. “We all know that because of them, we live in freedom.”

The TinCaps continue their partnership with the Northeast Indiana Military Assistance Network (N.I.M.A.N.) offering military in attendance the chance to visit kiosks highlighting many of the support organizations and offerings available to military, active and veteran, in our area.

TinCaps players will be wearing 122nd Honor Flight Northeast Indiana commemorative jerseys, and a special military recognition will take place during the game. The TinCaps also will wear these jerseys on the Fourth of July. That day, the jerseys will be auctioned off, with proceeds being donated to Honor Flight Northeast Indiana.

Military personnel and their family who are eligible to request tickets to these games can visit TinCapsMilitary.comfor more information. Tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies are available.
