TinCaps welcome military, families to June 15 game


The Fort Wayne TinCaps will partner with OmniSource Corp. 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.

Individual donors also contributed to pay for the complimentary tickets for military families, both active and veteran, to enjoy that night’s game.

Military personnel and their families who are eligible to request tickets to this game can visit TinCapsMilitary.com for more information. Tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies are available. The request deadline is Wednesday, June 1, at 11:59 p.m. For further information, contact Ben Snider with the TinCaps at (260) 407-2828 or snider@tincaps.com.

TinCaps President Mike Nutter said this marks the eighth consecutive year the team has welcomed military to Parkview Field in this way.

The TinCaps continue their partnership with the Northeast Indiana Military Assistance Network, offering military in attendance the chance to visit kiosks highlighting many of the support organizations and offerings available to military, both active and veteran.

TinCaps players will wear 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.

“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 and COO of OmniSource. “We all know that because of them, we live in freedom.”
