Lucky fan may win $2 million

The TinCaps want to make you a millionaire.

Fort Wayne’s single-A team is anticipating welcoming its 2 millionth fan to Parkview Field before the end of the year, and the TinCaps want to give that fan a chance to win $2 million.

The TinCaps will have one more regular-season homestand – Aug. 31 to Sept. 2 against Great Lakes – and are guaranteed a home playoff game Sept. 5.

Parkview Field, which opened in 2009, had greeted 1,598,923 fans entering this season, and the TinCaps sit 25,286 shy of hitting 2 million.

When the 2 millionth fan enters the ballpark, a person in attendance will be given the chance to win $2 million after the game.

“We will reveal more details as we approach the milestone game. Part of the fun of this promotion is the element of surprise,” TinCaps President Mike Nutter said in a statement.

“We can say that the TinCaps 2 millionth fan can be from 2 to 102 years old and still have a chance at taking home the $2 million jackpot. You won’t have to hit a home run or throw 100 miles per hour.”
