Stadium Journey has again ranked Parkview Field in Fort Wayne as Minor League Baseball’s top ballpark. The home of the TinCaps has taken the honor four times in the last five years.
The publication bases its rankings on factors including food and beverage options, fans, return on attendance and special features. Parkview Field, which opened in 2009, earned a score of 4.7 out of 5.
Stadium Journey co-founder Paul Swaney calls Parkview Field "the success story for all other minor league ballparks to emulate." Its review cites the stadium’s "great food, great seating options…great neighborhood, great entertainment and great customer service."
Parkview Field set a franchise attendance record this year with an average of 5,971 fans per game, including a single-game record of 9,193 fans on the fourth of July.
