FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — The Fort Wayne TinCaps have released their promotional schedule for the 2020 season at Parkview Field.
The TinCaps have a jam-packed calendar of promotions that begins with Opening Day on Monday, April 13.

This year Parkview Field will welcome Leslie David Baker, Stanley Hudson from The Office, on Friday, July 17, as well as WWE Hall of Famer Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat for Pro Wrestling Night on Friday, Aug. 21.
Two players from the Indianapolis Colts will also be in attendance for Colts At Bat on Thursday, May 14.

The San Diego Padres star shortstop played for the TinCaps in 2017, and at just 18 years old, set the franchise’s single-season record for home runs.
The TinCaps will also host their first-ever Sensory Friendly Game on Tuesday, July 28, when fans can expect softer music, more spacious seating options, and other accommodations to support families who are affected by sensory-processing challenges.
Other new promotions for the 2020 season include several group trivia nights.

As previously announced, 2020 will also feature the debut of other new promotions, such as Paws and Claws Nights on Wednesdays and Días de La Familia, when the TinCaps will take on the identity of Manzanas Luchadoras for select games.
The TinCaps’ 70-game regular-season home schedule runs through Labor Day.
