    Fort Wayne Wizards

    The Wizards are Fort Wayne's minor league baseball team. They are a minor league affilliate for the San Diego Padres. Come support our team if you're in town between April and October. All home games take place at Memorial Stadium, a beautiful stadium across the parking lot from the Memorial Coliseum known locally as The Castle. For tickets, go to www.ticketmaster.com or call 1-800-482-6400.

    Fort Wayne hosts a Single A baseball team called the Tin Caps. They play in a new ball park (completed in 2009) in downtown Fort Wayne that can host up to 8200 people. Unlike major league baseball going to a minor league game (especially a Class A game) it is truly a family event with activities on and off the field between innings. Prices are much less then a major league game also, although the food prices are starting to approach the major league levels.

    Myself and 3 other colleagues picked a beautiful night to go watch this game on a Thursday night. In fact the night we went was designated as Thirsty Thursday and you could get an 8 oz beer for $1. I only had 1 myself (not much of a beer drinker), but if you were a beer drinker it was a great night for that. Home team lost that night, but going for the experience is what I enjoyed. Besides it again beats going back to the hotel at night.

    Equipment: For anyone reading this who is not familiar with American baseball the divisions go like this.

    Major League - The highest level of the sport where the athletes make many $$$$$. My Major League team is the Chicago Cubs.
    AAA or Triple A - The level just below the Majors. Players hope to get to the next level and during a season some do.
    AA or Double A - The level below that
    A or Single A - Usually several levels of Single A.
    Rookie Leagues - Kids just drafted a shorter season

    The games follow most of the same rules.

    Komets Hockey

    by Ischyros Updated Jul 20, 2006

    The Fort Wayne Komets are a huge part of the Fort Wayne community! Komet hockey often draws 7,000-8,000 people and several sold out games with over 10,000. The Coliseum is often considered one of the best sporting arenas in the UHL, even by visiting opponents! If you are in town anytime between November and March, try to see one of their games in the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum! You can get Komets gear at Komets Kuarters, which has moved to a new location on Coldwater Road in the shopping center one block north of Coliseum Blvd.
