TinCaps Tickets On Sale February 15

Those in search of a sign for spring are in luck. Tickets to individual TinCaps games for the 2017 season at Parkview Field are set to go on sale Wednesday, February 15, beginning at 8 a.m. Fans can purchase tickets in person at Parkview Field, online at, and by calling 260-482-6400.

Those who purchase tickets at Parkview Field on February 15 between 8 and 10 a.m. will be treated to a free breakfast in the ballpark’s Suite Level Lounge. The buffet will include fresh scrambled eggs, a waffle bar (featuring whipped cream, blueberries, apple slices, strawberries, syrup, and butter), biscuits and gravy, bacon, hashbrowns, cereal and milk, oatmeal and honey/butter/syrup, fresh fruit, and yogurt and granola, as well as coffee and orange juice.

“We can’t wait for Opening Day to get here,” said TinCaps President Mike Nutter. “For as special as the first eight seasons of TinCaps baseball at Parkview Field have been, I really think 2017 can be even better. We’re certainly still motivated every day to make the fan experience here the best it can possibly be. And of course, it’s only possible because of the great support of our fans, sponsors, local media, and other partners around the region.”

In 2016, the TinCaps had 21 sellout crowds at Parkview Field. In fact, the team set a franchise attendance record, drawing 413,701 fans over the course of 68 home dates. The ballpark’s average attendance of 6,084 was also a record. The TinCaps ranked second in attendance out of 100 Single-A and Rookie-level organizations a year ago, while posting higher season numbers than 28 of 30 Double-A teams and even 12 of 30 Triple-A clubs.

The TinCaps earned Minor League Baseball’s most prestigious honor last year, the John H. Johnson President’s Award for organizational excellence.

This year’s Parkview Field promotional schedule includes 31 fireworks shows, 10 performances by national entertainers, theme nights (such as Star Wars) every Friday, and more. The TinCaps’ full promo schedule can be found here.

The TinCaps begin their 70-game home schedule on Saturday, April 8 (6:05 p.m.) against the Bowling Green Hot Rods (Tampa Bay Rays).
