FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – Parkview Field, the home of the Fort Wayne TinCaps, will host 12 high school/college baseball games, featuring 24 area teams, this April and May as part of the annual Parkview Sports Medicine Baseball Classic.
The action will take place while the TinCaps are playing on the road.
Manchester University and the University of Saint Francis will open the series of games on April 18 in a matchup of nearby colleges.
After that, 11 high school matchups will feature rival teams from around Northeast Indiana and Northwest Ohio. See schedule below.
The following was released by the TinCaps and Parkview Field:
“Parkview Sports Medicine is proud to partner with the TinCaps to continue supporting our area schools and offer the student-athletes an opportunity to compete at a world-class facility like Parkview Field,” said Candice Dunkin, Director of Sports Medicine at Parkview Health.
Thanks to Parkview Sports Medicine’s sponsorship, the games are taking place at no cost to the participating schools. As in the past, the amateur teams will receive professional treatment at Parkview Field, like having their headshots displayed on the video board. Competing teams also will wear a commemorative PSM Baseball Classic patch on their uniforms.
“Parkview Field is about more than just TinCaps baseball,” said TinCaps President Mike Nutter. “High school and college sports help bring communities together and Parkview Field is the perfect community gathering space. We’re grateful for the service Parkview Sports Medicine provides to our region. And there’s nothing better than seeing the smiles of these student-athletes playing on the same field that’s hosted future MLB All-Stars.”
