TinCaps Launch "First in Line for 2021" Package

November 11, 2020 - Midwest League (MWL) - Fort Wayne TinCaps News Release

FORT WAYNE, Ind. - The TinCaps haven't had a fan in the seats at Parkview Field since September of 2019, but as the team anxiously awaits returning to play in 2021, they're offering fans a chance to be "first in line" at the ballpark.

Fans can purchase a "First in Line for 2021" package that includes an undated ticket for the 2021 season plus a life-size cutout of themselves placed in a seat at Parkview Field, while also supporting local non-profit organizations.

"We missed being able to welcome fans to the ballpark this summer," TinCaps Vice President Michael Limmer said. "But as we look forward to getting fans back to watch baseball at Parkview Field next season, we wanted to give them the opportunity to join us early. These life-size fan cutouts have been seen all over sports in 2020 and we're excited about packing our ballpark with people again, even if, for now, they're just cutouts."

"First in Line for 2021" packages are available now on for just $40.

Fans can upload their photo to the TinCaps' site and then watch their cutout be seated at the ballpark via a photo on social media. Fans will be invited to the ballpark next spring to take their life-size cutout home as a keepsake.

"Every time a new fan joins us, we'll post a photo of them on social media," Limmer said. "Every fan will get a chance to see themselves as we fill the ballpark in anticipation of the 2021 season."

On top of a life-size cutout and ticket for the 2021 season, fans will have the chance for their purchase to positively impact a local non-profit. The TinCaps have partnered with more than 40 area personalities to be "section leaders" as part of the "First in Line for 2021" program. (See list below.) When fans make their order, they'll have the opportunity to select which personality they'd like to sit with at the ballpark. The TinCaps will donate $5 from each package to that personality's charity of choice.

"In 2020 we've missed being able to have fun with fans, partner with some of our favorite local personalities, and positively impact area non-profits," Limmer said. "With the 'First in Line' program, we've been able to tie that all together."
