The Fort Wayne TinCaps, minor league team for the San Diego Padres, opened a brand new downtown stadium on Thursday night in front of 8,208 fans.  This ballpark is beautiful and state of the art.  I took tons of pictures, and am going to share a bunch with you in no particular order.

    Great pictures Corey. Fort Wayne looks very strong this season, that can’t do anything but help open a new stadium.

  2. Nice pics Corey. Great job.

  3. Nice Pics Corey. Great job capturing the park and the atmosphere.

  4. Corey says:

    Thanks Chad…I hope the pictures do this place justice, as it is very nice…There are always a few things to pick on, but overall a great facility. Can’t wait until everything is finished…Luckily I will be back to about 14 more games this season to see…

  5. Corey says:

    Fort Wayne does look strong…They also appear young and almost an entire new roster from last year.

  6. I think there are 7 from last year’s roster. The team is actually older than the last few years. As I understand it, the Padres went deeper with college players in the draft last year, so that helps.

    tHAT PLACE CAN’T TOUCH DAYTON BEFORE DAYTON HAS CB!

  8. Corey says:

    Something is sure working so far for the Tin Caps…They have some great players and are playing really well right now…

    got to love the Fort Wayne “pot heads”….

  10. […] whatever you want to call it.  I did a post last season with tons of pictures, located by clicking HERE.  Please check that out so I do not have to repeat them all. I will bring you some new ones […]
