FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — Thursday marked a special night in the history of the TinCaps, but not because of the final score.
Parkview Field saw its largest crowd ever, as 9,508 fans stopped by for the Fourth of July game. The TinCaps could not treat that record crowd to a victory though, falling 4-1 to Lake County.
