April 16, 2011 -- Representatives from the Fort Wayne Tincaps minor league baseball team visited the 122nd Fighter Wing to film Airmen on April 16, 2011. The Tincaps will be using the footage of the Airmen introducing the playing of the National Anthem at home games on the big screen.

The Tincaps are thankful for the members' service to their country, and this is just one of the small ways to show that appreciation. The Airmen were also excited about being on camera. "I feel like a movie star for a minute!" says Airman 1st Class Chris Klotz.

The representatives are also eager to come back to the base to film more Airmen. There are approximately 70 home games where the footage can be seen.
