After a frustrating start to the season that featured a number of games postponed to poor weather, the Fort Wayne TinCaps have begun to settle into a groove as of late, winning six of their last seven baseball games. The single-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres most recently swept the Beloit Snappers at their home park. Minor league baseball is an environment unlike anything else in sports, it is fun — especially when the local Fort Wayne team is putting on a display like they have been recently. Another great thing about minor league baseball games is they are concocted with families in mind, making them a great summer outing.
While still sitting at a mediocre record overall, if the TinCaps continue this tear they are currently on they will most definitely be competing for the Midwest League title come season’s end. The most intriguing prospect on the TinCaps, shortstop Fernando Tatis, is also due for a turnaround as he is currently only batting a .216 average at the plate. If Tatis and a few other players begin playing up to their top caliber then the TinCaps will be a seriously dangerous team. Indeed, it was 2009 the last time Fort Wayne won the title but this team has the look and feel of a team destined to compete.
Do not hesitate any longer, get out to the Parkview Field as soon as possible and watch the MLB All-Stars of tomorrow, today. As I said, minor league baseball is an enthralling sport, and the Tincaps have one of the most exciting rosters in all of Minor League Baseball.
