FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.nbc33.com) -- Bring your pooch with you to watch a TinCaps game Sunday, Aug. 4th at Parkview Field.

Bark at the Park will be held during Sunday's double-header against the Lansing Lugnuts through a partnership with the Allen County SPCA and the Pet-Co Foundation.

Pooch Passes were $12 and lawn seats for humans are only $5. 150 Pooch Passes were being sold.

"You must sign your dog up in advance, we do ask that you sign a waiver and just provide up-to-date vaccinations and rabies shots for the animal before bringing them out to the ballpark," said Tom Baxter, Corporate Partnerships Manager with the TinCaps. "All dogs here must be on a leash but we will have some water stations set up throughout the area. We'll have them out here in our lawn section out here in left center field and they are welcome to roam throughout the outfield. We also do ask that they also come in the gates off Jefferson Boulevard."

With 150 dogs in the ballpark, it begs the question, where are they going to potty? Each owner will be given a baggie to use in the case of emergency, but there will also be an area set up in the amphitheater behind center field for all the doggies to do their business.

For full details call the TinCaps at 260-407-2806.
