FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - The TinCaps home opener is just over a week away and a number of businesses in downtown are anxiously awaiting the first pitch.

One of the main goals the city had when they brought a new baseball stadium downtown was to bring people and business with it. Between residential developments or new bars and restaurants, it’s safe to say the stadium has brought a lot of traffic.

In an attempt to bring more residents to live downtown, the city continues to work on adding amenities like drug stores and grocery stores nearby.
