FORT WAYNE, Ind. – For the first time ever, the TinCaps will wear pink jerseys designed by Vera Bradley for the team’s annual Turn the Park Pink Night on Saturday, June 17 (7:05 pm), when they host the Dayton Dragons (Cincinnati Reds) at Parkview Field.
The “modern medley”-patterned pink jerseys are designed by Vera Bradley Senior Graphic Designer Alexandria Baker, a TinCaps fan and Fort Wayne native who went to the University of St. Francis.
“We’re thrilled to be partnered with Vera Bradley and the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer,” said TinCaps Vice President Michael Limmer. “Not only do the jerseys look great, but most importantly they’ll be helping to save lives.”
The jerseys are currently being auctioned off online at TinCapsJersey.com and will be available for fans to bid on through the bottom of the sixth inning on the night of the game. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer. (Fans don’t need to be in attendance at the game to win the online auction.)
Currently, the TinCaps’ roster features nine of the San Diego Padres’ top 30 prospects, including shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. , who ESPN.com ranks as one of the 50 best prospects in all of baseball.
Turn the Park Pink Night at Parkview Field also will feature Postgame Fireworks, presented by Auto–Owners Insurance, and a performance by the world-renowned QuickChange act.
Tickets for the TinCaps’ Turn the Park Pink Night are available at TinCapsTickets.com, by calling 260-482-6400, and at the Parkview Field Ticket Office.
