The Fort Wayne TinCaps and Fort Wayne Mad Ants held joint open try-outs to become the team's official mascot Saturday October 26th at the Concordia Theological Seminary Gymnasium between 2PM and 6PM.

Participants were put through a series of tasks and drills similar to what they may experience during home games as well as public appearances.

Our very own Eric DeFreeuw seized the opportunity to try out to be the newest Mad Ant mascot on Friday, here is a look at how he did and the lessons he learned during the process.
