TinCaps to move to new ballpark tomorrow

The Fort Wayne TinCaps will move into their new Parkview Field digs on Friday the 13th.The Fort Wayne TinCaps (Low Class A; Midwest League) front-office staff will be moving from their offices at Memorial Stadium to their newly finished offices at Parkview Field on Friday, February 13th.

“We are thrilled to be able to move into our new space at Parkview Field,” said TinCaps Team President, Mike Nutter. “It is a tribute to Weigand Construction and all of the sub-contractors involved with the development of Parkview Field that our staff will be able to be on-site in beautiful and fully functional office space two months before Opening Day.” The entrance to the TinCaps office is located at 1301 Ewing Street, on the west side of Parkview Field.

Not only will the move provide staff members with the added benefit of being on-site during the final stages of construction, the increased square footage is a necessity. “We have added 15 full-time employees and have completely out-grown our current offices,” said Nutter. “There are only so many spaces you can squeeze people.”

The final phases of construction will continue at Parkview Field through mid- to late March. “The TinCaps offices will be fully operational this coming Monday,” said Tim Burkhart, Facilities Director at Parkview Field. “We caution people coming to the team’s administrative offices that work continues on the rest of Parkview Field and this remains an active construction site. A hard hat is required everywhere on site except the TinCaps office space.”
