The Fort Wayne Wizards, a Single A affiliate of San Diego, play at Parkview Field built in 2009 and seating 8,100+. The field is below street level. There is a wide range of seating with grass seating in LF and RC. There appears to be folding chair seating on a building in RF. There are multiple picnic areas. There are 16 suites and the Tuthill area in CF is for private groups and provides the batter's eye. Excellent video board. Parkview Field was featured on the cover of Stadium Journey Magazine in January 2015. Parkview Field was names the best minor league ballpark experience in 2014 by Stadium Journey. Thanks to Brent Harring, Senior ticket Account Manager, for providing me a copy of the magazine. You can walk the concourse completely around the field. Beyond the concourse in left field is a building of condos, with a couple of restaurants on the first level. Attendance for this game on July 4th set a new record of 9,193. The TinCaps were playing the Dayton Dragons and lost 6-0. The box score was Dragons R-6, H-11, E-1 and TinCaps R-0, H-4, E-2. The baselines are RF-318', CF-400', LC-376', and LF-336'. The mascot is Johnny. The Zooper Stars were featured entertainment between the innings, including Tim Tebull & Harry Canary. The groundskeepers dance by 3rd and 1st base when smoothing the infield at the end of the 6th inning. There is a Taco Bell Hot Sauce Race that starts on the video board and ends on the field. I was told that the big device on the roof edge behind homeplate records information on the field that is forwarded to Minor League Baseball. The Captain America jerseys worn by the TinCaps will be auctioned after the game to benefit Honor Flight for WWII and Korean veterans to Washington, D C. There is a large parking garage adjacent right field. After the game most fans stayed for the Fort Wayne city fireworks celebration staged from the top of the tall building behind the right side of the condos in the second picture. Having seen two nights of fireworks already I returned to my hotel.
