Parkview Field Recognized as Best Class A Ballpark
Monday, June 10, 2019

Parkview Field is the most popular ballpark in Minor League Baseball's Class A level. The home of the Tin Caps has won Ballpark Digest's "Best of the Ballparks" bracket competition for an unprecedented third time.

In a nail-biting head-to-head championship round, Parkview Field received 50.4-percent of the online vote to beat SRP Park (home of the South Atlantic League’s Augusta Green Jackets). The bracket featured 30 teams (16 Midwest League clubs and 14 from the equivalent South Atlantic League). The Tin Caps had a first-round bye and then defeated the West Virginia Power (Charleston, W.V), Lansing Lugnuts (Lansing, Mich.) and West Michigan Whitecaps (Comstock Park, Mich.) before Augusta.

Over 83,000 votes were recorded on BallparkDigest.com, a new record total. This is just the latest feather in the cap for Parkview Field. In a more objective evaluation, Stadium Journey has ranked Parkview Field as the No. 1 ballpark experience for fans throughout Minor League Baseball (out of 160 venues) six times since 2011.

Parkview Field is currently celebrating its 11th season after opening in Downtown Fort Wayne in 2009. The ballpark has already hosted more than 4 million fans for Tin Caps games and more than 1 million fans for non-Tin Caps special events. The venue's success has helped spur tremendous growth around the city.

The Tin Caps and Parkview Field will receive a trophy from Ballpark Digest later this year.
