The Fort Wayne TinCaps will host the sixth annual Parkview Sports Medicine High School Baseball Series at Parkview Field this spring. The series features 10 games, showcasing 20 different local schools in April and May, while the TinCaps are on the road.

Parkview Sports Medicine is once again underwriting the event so participating schools don’t have any ballpark rental costs. In fact, the games actually will serve as fundraisers for the schools. For every $5 ticket sold, $4 goes back to the schools. (The remaining $1 goes toward Parkview Field’s Ballpark Maintenance and Improvement Fund.)

“Parkview Field is such a fantastic facility,” said Tommy Schoegler, Director of Parkview Sports Medicine. “We’re proud to provide our Parkview Sports Medicine partner schools with the chance to play at one of the premier ballparks in baseball.”

Similar to a TinCaps game, there will be giveaways, entertainment, and concessions for fans. Players will even get “big league” treatment with their headshots up on Parkview Field’s video board.

As in the past, all Parkview Sports Medicine High School Baseball Series games are scheduled to be broadcast live on TV (Comcast Network 81) and stream online (ESPNFortWayne.com andSummitCitySports.com).

“Just like Opening Night and the Fourth of July, high school baseball at Parkview Field has become a tradition,” TinCaps President Mike Nutter said. “Parkview Sports Medicine’s support of these games is a true testament of their commitment to our community, and the TinCaps are thrilled to host these up-and-coming student-athletes.”

This year’s schedule includes a celebration of East Allen County Schools on April 15 and Wabash County on May 9.

Parkview Sports Medicine is the exclusive medical provider for 26 area high schools and five universities.

April 15… 4:30pm

Heritage vs. Leo

April 15… 7:00 pm

The New Haven Athletic Program will honor two athletes and recognize the 1960 Cross Country team during its Hall of Fame inductions at halftime of the New Haven varsity boys’ basketball game February 15 against Heritage High School. Previous Hall of Famers will also be introduced and recognized at the game.

This year’s inductees include 1980 graduate Jim Fitzgerald the only athlete in Bulldog history to run in both the 400 and 800 meter at the State Meet. Fitzgerald was a four-letterman in both Track and Cross Country and a state qualifier in both. His 49.0 time in the 400 Meter run is still the school record. Fitzgerald continued his running career at Southwest Michigan College where he was an All-American in the 800 Meter Run and the 4X400 Meter Relay. Fitzgerald was a National Champion in Cross Country as well as participating in the National Champions in Cross Country while at Southwest Michigan College. Jim Fitzgerald currently assists with the New Haven Track and Field Team.

Brandon Martin from the class of 1991, was an eight varsity letter winner at New Haven with four letters in baseball and two each in basketball and football. Martin earned All-Conference honors in both football and baseball and capped off his senior year with First Team All NHC, First Team All-Area, First Team All-State and named to the IHSBCA North All-Star squad. Martin won a school record 13 wins pitching for the Bulldogs, and hit over .400 and scored 47 runs. Both his win numbers and runs scored remain school records. Martin continued his baseball career at Indiana State University playing with fellow New Haven star, Dave Doster. Martin also coached successfully at Willow Canyon High School in Surprise Arizona before returning to Fort Wayne in 2017.

The New Haven High School Athletic Hall of Fame will recognize its first team to the Hall of Fame with the introduction of the 1960 Cross Country team who finished second at the state meet in the fall of 1960. The 1960 team captured the NEIAC meet, won the Sectional and finished second at the state meet, the highest finish of any New Haven athletic team ever. The Bulldogs were coached by Jim Weaver. Team members included: Irwin Schnelker, Larry Warrick, Dave Bazinett, Don Stine, Dennis Kummer, Dennis Renier, Neal Wissman, Bill Foust, Larry Rothenhofer, Dave Sutton, Jerry Ellis, Ron Berning, Larry Keeler and Bill Whitten.

SafeWise is happy to announce the release of the annual 20 Safest Cities in Indiana 2018 Report.

New Haven made the list at #20 this year!

Here is all the information you’ll need to share this achievement with your community:

What? SafeWise released the 20 Safest Cities in Indiana for 2018.

When? This report was released on November 6th, 2018.

Where? Check out the full rankings here: https://www.safewise.com/blog/safest-cities-indiana/

How? To compile this report, SafeWise analysts reviewed the most recent 2016 FBI crime statistics and population data. Our evaluation is based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape and robbery) in each city per 1000 people. If there was a tie, we also factored in the number of property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and car theft).

Cities that fell below identified population thresholds or failed to submit a complete FBI crime report were excluded from the ranking system.

Who is SafeWise? SafeWise is an online safety resource that advocates for consumers and helps families and communities make informed decisions. Our mission is to provide helpful reviews, insightful tips, comprehensive resources, and valuable safety information in one convenient place. SafeWise regularly releases “Safest Cities” reports, and other reports on a variety of safety topics to raise awareness about the state of safety in our country.

Quote: SafeWise security analyst Alexia Chianis says, “Indiana’s twenty safest cities vary considerably in size and location, but they’re all working hard to keep crime under control. The cities on our list experienced an average violent crime rate nearly 85% lower than the state, according to the most recent FBI crime report. We were also impressed that cities which didn’t make our list, like Indianapolis, are leveraging new initiatives such as OneCOP to help improve police-citizen communication and reduce crime.”
