FORT WAYNE, Ind (FORT WAYNE'S NBC) - The Minor League Baseball season is canceled, but TinCaps fans can still watch some of the greats play in a virtual game.

Three TinCaps employees broadcast The MLB The Show, with the all-time great Fort Wayne roster.

"Certainly different than what we are use to at Parkview Field in the summer time," TinCaps broadcaster, John Nolan said.

"Doing this once a week still gives me that thrill of doing a live performance," Assistant Production Manager, Tim Bajema said.

But so much of the experience in Minor League Baseball stadiums comes with entertainment other than baseball.

"One of the things we'll do is show promotions from previous games," Bajema said. "Almost have that summer baseball feeling again."

As the Video Production Intern, Zach Webb controls the lineups.

"It's a lot of fun to go back to the Wizard games in 1993. It's fun to have Torii Hunter batting after Fernando Tatis Jr. to bring in all the different age groups of all the TinCaps," Webb said.

For upcoming broadcasts, follow the Fort Wayne TinCaps on social media. The team releases a link to the show every Thursday.
