TinCaps to expand protective netting‘’(Supplied/FW TinCaps)‘’
Some changes are coming to the baseball experience at Fort Wayne’s Parkview Field.
The Fort Wayne TinCaps have received approval from the city’s Redevelopment Commission to further expand the protective netting at the ballpark.
The netting will be expanded to provide increased protection for all non-outfield seating areas, stretching from foul pole to foul pole. While it previously only guarded fans in Sections 103 to 113, the expanded netting will additionally cover the Toyota Field Boxes, Sections 101, 102, 114, and a majority of the Huntington University Picnic Pavilion.
“Fan experience is our number one priority,” says Team President Mike Nutter. “Keeping people safe while they enjoy a TinCaps game should always be a part of that experience… When we expanded the netting in 2016, we heard from so many fans, thanking us for providing peace of mind when sitting in areas that were better protected from foul balls. We know the same will continue to be true for even more fans now in 2020.”
Opening Day 2020 at Parkview Field is set for Monday, April 13.
