FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - There's nothing quite like the look and feel of a baseball diamond on opening day, but this year TinCaps fans can't help but notice the Harrison rapidly taking shape next to Parkview Field.

By this time next year, apartment residents will be able to watch opening day from their balconies, but in the meantime, baseball fans need not worry about construction interfering with their game day experience.

TinCaps officials say the concourse isn't changing and crews won't typically be working during night games. There is one less lane of traffic open on Jefferson Blvd. coming into Parkview Field, but officials aren't expecting any traffic flow issues in or out of the game.

When the Harrison is finished in February 2013, there will living options overlooking the diamond, a new Irish pub, a law firm on the second floor, and a credit union.

In addition, the sounds of the baseball games will be more tightly contained in the ball park. That means you'll be able to hear the cheers and even the crack of the bat better.
