TinCaps simulated Opening Night success

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Despite there being no real live baseball Monday night, the Fort Wayne TinCaps still put on a show, via the video game MLB The Show 20.

TinCaps broadcasters John Nolan and Jack McMullen called a video simulated Opening Night game between the TinCaps all-time team and the Dayton Dragons all-time roster.

The TinCaps streamed a, 2-0, victory over the Dragons, via their Facebook page.

Nolan believes this could become a semi-regular event.

"Maybe, we can throw some new wrinkles in this along the way," Nolan said.

"It is something we could do going forward, at least, while we wait for the real thing."

The TinCaps provided between-inning entertainment, as well, along with engaging in fan interaction behind the screens, rather than in the stands.
