News and notes
- Friday's walk-off single by Stephen Carmon, following a four-run ninth inning by the TinCaps, was certainly the highlight of the season for Fort Wayne thus far. The squad now has a chance to sweep its second consecutive home series and move to 9-1 at home, as well as go on its longest winning streak of the season. The TinCaps have won three straight entering today's game.
- Season attendance this year, despite cold weather, reached 33,441 Friday, with a crowd of 4,338. As the weather warms up, the average thus far (3,344) is sure to grow. The '50s night promotion, from what we saw Friday, was well received by the crowd, and the TinCaps uniforms for that game drew quite a reaction, as well.
