Originally, the team was called the Fort Wayne Wizards but later changed its name to the TinCaps when it rebranded and moved to its new stadium in 2008. The name TinCaps is a nod to Johnny Appleseed, who is buried in Fort Wayne. The team plays in the Midwest League's Eastern Division along with other Midwestern teams like the Dayton Dragons, Lansing Lugnuts, and South Bend Cubs. The TinCaps have had various success against these teams since entry into the league, winning a variety of team and individual awards along the way. The team is actually one of the older franchises in the league, starting in 1947 as the Matoon Indians.

Five years into its residency in Fort Wayne, the team switched affiliations from the Minnesota Twins to the San Diego Padres.
