Put August 16 on your lineup card

Posted on May 01, 2014 by Alicia Levitt - News and Events

We need your help filling Parkview Field on Saturday, August 16, as we celebrate the unique resources we have in northeast Indiana-18 Lutheran schools-with The Lutheran Schools Partnership's Fourth Annual Lutheran Schools Night at the TinCaps. This event is one of the largest gatherings of Lutheran-friendly families in the region. For $7 a ticket, you can enjoy a great game, watch fireworks, run the bases, and reconnect with old friends. Last year, over one-quarter of the stadium was filled with Lutheran school-friendly baseball fans, and our goal this year is to hit 50 percent of the stadium's capacity! To that effect, several Thrivent chapters are planning coordinating efforts at Parkview Field that night, and Concordia Lutheran High School is planning an alumni outing at the game. We've also reached out to other Lutheran higher-education institutions; more information is still to come from those groups. While a dollar from every ticket purchased through Justin at the TinCaps, (260) 407-2808 or shurley@tincaps.com, will go to The Lutheran Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) of Indiana's General Scholarship Fund, we really hope you and your church or school group will attend for the camaraderie and to enjoy being among such a large group of Lutheran-friendly families. And, yes, we'll have special drawings for gift certificates and autographed team items, and offer the chance to throw out the first pitch to the group with the largest number of tickets purchased by July 1. So, come one, come all. Get your tickets purchased, wear your favorite Lutheran-based school-spirit gear, and help fill the seats!
