Faces in the crowd

TinCaps fans will be more than just faces in the crowd August 29 on Fan Appreciation Night.

They'll be faces in play.

The TinCaps announced today that, to honor their fans, the TinCaps will, with permission, wear special uniforms featuring photos of fans for the 7:05 p.m. game against West Michigan.

Here's how it works: If fans "like" or "comment" on the TinCaps’ Facebook post regarding Fan Appreciation Night jerseys by 5 p.m. Monday, July 14, the team will put their Facebook profile pictures on Fort Wayne’s one-of-a-kind jerseys.

The jerseys will be given away at random to fans in attendance during the game.
