It’s that time of the year again! Time for ballgames by Tin Caps at Parkview Field!
If you’ve not yet attended a ball game at Fort Wayne’s outstanding ball field, please consider doing so this year. Not only does the team offer a beautiful place to sit and watch baseball, they offer some fascinating local entertainment between innings. The name of that entertainment is the Bad Apple Dancers.
These are four guys whose main function is to smooth out the dirt on the field. While pulling a big rake, they add their own moves on the route around the diamond.
To help you get to know the Bad Apple Dancers we’ve asked them to contribute some personal information about themselves. First up is Austin Allen who also works as Ticket Sales Manager for the Tin Caps.
