Here is a link to the original story on the team's website.
Halloween is quickly approaching and Johnny TinCap is looking to make plans. Do you know anyone who’d like to go trick-or-treating with him?
If so, members of the TinCaps Kids Club are invited to enter the TinCaps Halloween Essay Contest. All you need to do is explain “Why I want to trick-or-treat with Johnny TinCap…” in 100 words or less.
Not a Kids Club member yet? Then sign up here. It’s free to join and open for all kids 12 and under. Benefits include invitations to VIP events open only to Kids Club members, like Johnny’s Birthday Party and a Clinic with TinCaps players, plus exclusive giveaways.
Essays are due by Wednesday, Oct. 25 at 5 p.m. and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, dropped off at Parkview Field, or sent to the following address:
Attn: Johnny TinCap, Fort Wayne TinCaps, 1301 Ewing St., Fort Wayne, IN 46802.
Entries will be judged by Johnny and his friends on the TinCaps’ staff.
Johnny will go trick-or-treating with the winner in his or her neighborhood for an hour on Halloween (Tuesday, Oct. 31). The winner also will receive a special TinCaps Prize Pack.
Happy Halloween from Johnny and the TinCaps!
And in the spirit of Halloween, don’t forget to visit Parkview Field on Saturday, Oct. 15 for Fright Night Downtown!
