Parkview Field

Parkview Field is a minor league baseball stadium located in the central business district of Fort Wayne, Indiana, U.S.

History

Parkview Field was built as the new home of the Midwest League's Fort Wayne TinCaps, Single-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres, replacing Memorial Stadium. The stadium is also one of the central components to the Harrison Square revitalization project in downtown Fort Wayne. The naming rights were bought by Parkview Health at $3 million over 10 years.

Opening Day was held April 16, 2009 before a sold-out crowd of 8,208. The TinCaps shut out the Dayton Dragons 7-0.

A record attendance of 8,572 made it to Parkview Field on August 6, 2009 not only to watch the TinCaps, but take part in festivities held celebrating Fort Wayne's All-America City designation, pushing the overall season attendance past 300,000.

Parkview Field was host to the 2010 Midwest League All-Star Game.
