The Fort Wayne TinCaps announcedt that they would partner with Comcast to enable all 70 games played this season to be broadcast live on Comcast’s digital cable lineup throughout most of Indiana. The TinCaps is one of only two Minor League Baseball teams to broadcast each of its home games live. The live games will be exclusive to Comcast Digital Cable customers on Channel 81.

In addition to offering TinCaps home games live, Comcast will also have access to original team content and On Demand highlight packages that digital cable customers will be able to view whenever it’s convenient for them, with the ability to pause, fast forward and rewind selections. Michael Limmer, Vice President of Marketing for the TinCaps, noted that Comcast designed and installed a state-of-the-art fiber-optic backbone and wiring system at the facility.

The faces in front of the camera will be long-time television broadcast personality Kent Hormann for play-by-play and Dan Watson for color commentary. Watson, who will be the radio voice for the TinCaps road games, will provide an insider’s perspective to the broadcast as he will travel with the team throughout the season. Hormann, a Fort Wayne broadcast veteran, moves to the TinCaps television production after spending the last 16 years on the team’s radio broadcasts.

Limmer added, “We are excited about the team we’ve assembled for our TV viewers. Fans will be able to have a behind-the-scenes insight into the players and the team while still being able to have a historical perspective of Fort Wayne’s baseball past. It really is the best of both worlds for the team and the fans at home.”

Great seats are now available for purchase by either logging on to TinCaps.com, over the phone at (260) 482-6400 or in person at the TinCaps Administrative Office located at Parkview Field.
