Parkview Field

“with a record-setting first 5 years”

When Fort Wayne’s Memorial Stadium closed its doors for the final time on August 28, 2008, it was only fitting that the winning pitcher was Jarrod Parker, a northeast Indiana native from Ossian. That last game against South Bend was another milestone in the baseball history of Fort Wayne, which dates back to 1861, when the first-ever professional game was played here. It closed out the 16th season at the ballpark that had become known as “The Castle”, a venue on Coliseum Boulevard that had welcomed professional baseball back to the Summit City in 1993. Hundreds of future major leaguers on teams from Beloit, Burlington, Clinton, Dayton, Peoria and Waterloo played at Memorial Stadium, but a change was coming to Fort Wayne and it was happening downtown.  Parkview Field plays host to more than 400 non-baseball events each year, from large-scale festivals like Fort4Fitness, rock and country concerts, and YMCA Healthy Kids day to wedding receptions, business events and holiday parties. More than 100,000 people come to Parkview Field for special events each calendar year (above and beyond the 400,000 that come each season for TinCaps games). With more than 11,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, Parkview Field can host events of almost any size. Additionally, weather permitting, the ballpark is open 365 days a year as a public facility. Runners and walkers frequent Parkview Field each day, as each lap around the ballpark is 1/3 mile.
