    City welcomes in athletes
    With the sun setting against a picturesque blue sky, it was the perfect evening for a baseball game. But, the athletes on Parkview Field were not baseball players, and many were not from Fort Wayne. “If I may say, hello to the world,” said Tom Trent, master of ceremonies at Tuesday's welcome event for the 2019 Goalball and Judo Paralympic Qualifier. And he was truly speaking to the world. Nearly 600 athletes, coaches and officials from almost 40 countries sat in the stands and met his greeting with a thunderstorm of applause. The qualifying event is the next step for the athletes to go to the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.

    Mike Nutter Inducted into the Northeast Indiana Baseball Association Hall of Fame
    Fort Wayne TinCaps Team President Mike Nutter is set to be inducted into the Northeast Indiana Baseball Association Hall of Fame on Sunday, May 19. Nutter is a three-time Midwest League Executive of the Year, having earned the award in 2004, 2009, and 2015. In a league that traces its history to 1947, he's one of only three people to win that accolade three or more times. Nutter came to Fort Wayne as an Assistant General Manager in 1999 and is now in his 20th season with the organization, and his 19th as Team President. The humble and self-deprecating Ohio native guided the team through its transition from the Fort Wayne Wizards at Memorial Stadium to rebranding as the TinCaps in 2009 and moving into Parkview Field.

    TinCaps Team with Ball State University Class

    Minor League Baseball is all about development. That applies not only to the players on the field, but on the front office side as well.

    With that mission in mind, the Fort Wayne TinCaps annually have partnered with Ball State University's Sports Administration Program. The program actually predates the TinCaps, going back to 2008, when the team was known as the Fort Wayne Wizards. In a mutually beneficial program, BSU students gain real-world experience by making sales calls to TinCaps fans who've attended games in the past.

    For students, it's an immersive learning project that can't be replicated in a regular classroom setting. Meanwhile, for the TinCaps, the partnership enables the team to keep contact with hundreds of fans during the winter.
