Masks no longer required at TinCaps games; Increased capacity plan now in place

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) — Now that the CDC says fully vaccinated people can safely gather outdoors and indoors without a mask, the Parkview Field is updating their safety protocols.

While masks are no longer required in any open-air spaces at the TinCaps stadium, you’re still encouraged to mask up.

Staff will be required to wear masks.

Right now, Parkview Field is operating at about 30 percent capacity, and has plans to open it up to 40 percent on June 1.

Depending on the COVID-19 situation, full capacity could come to Parkview Field by mid to late summer.

Here is an overview of the changes:

Parkview Field Mask Policy (Effective Immediately)

  • Guests at Parkview Field are encouraged to wear masks, but masks will no longer be required in any open-air spaces within Parkview Field.
  • Guests who haven’t been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 yet are required to wear a mask while in any indoor area of Parkview Field, including the TinCaps Front Office, the Suite Level Lounge, The Orchard Team Store, and restroom facilities.
  • Parkview Field staff and personnel will continue to wear masks during events.

Parkview Field Seating Capacity

Effective June 1, 2021

  • Overall ballpark capacity will increase to approximately 40% (currently 30%).
  • Parkview Field’s Legacy, Club, and All-Star seating areas will remain available only in socially distanced seating pods.
  • Parkview Field’s three (3) Reserved seating sections will increase to 100% capacity for TinCaps games beginning on this date.
  • Parkview Field’s Field Box area will increase to 100% capacity beginning on this date.
  • Parkview Field’s Suites will increase to 100% capacity beginning on this date.

Effective June 29, 2021

  • Parkview Field’s Legacy, Club, and All-Star seating areas will increase capacity to near 100%.
  • Parkview Field’s capacity is expected to increase incrementally as the TinCaps’ season continues through September.

“Increasing capacity is not as easy as just flipping a switch,” said TinCaps Team President Mike Nutter. “We’re applying the same amount and level of care to increasing the number of guests we can welcome to the ballpark as we did when we originally created our plan to start the season. We are excited to welcome more fans very soon, but we want to do so in a way that allows us to provide them with the great family entertainment experience they have come to expect at Parkview Field.”

After the team spent a week on the road, the TinCaps return to Parkview Field tonight for a six-game series through Sunday against the Lansing Lugnuts (Oakland A’s affiliate).
