TinCaps

  • TinCaps win at gate, lose on field
    The TinCaps fell behind by 10 runs in the middle of the game Friday and miraculously brought the tying run to the on-deck circle with two down in the ninth inning.
  • Having a grand time
    Less than a week ago, after getting swept at Lake County, the TinCaps seemed to lose any momentum they had been building in their pursuit of a sixth straight playoff berth.

TinCaps to add buffet club in center field

FORT WAYNE -- The Fort Wayne TinCaps on Wednesday announced an $800,000 investment at Parkview Field, unveiling plans for an all-you-can eat and drink buffet on the center-field wall.

Called the 400 Club, the new structure will seat up to 150 people and can be rented by groups. It will have three food stations, plus a dessert bar; will serve soft drinks, draft beer and wine; and mixed drinks will be available. Tickets are $40 per person and include a game ticket.

The field side of the building will feature two tiers of seating, and have floor-to-ceiling windows.

TinCaps President Mike Nutter said the project will not use any city funds or the ballpark’s capital maintenance fund.

“It’s a 100 percent TinCaps team investment,” Nutter said.

The 400 Club is expected to open in mid-May.
