Bosse Field

Bosse Field

Named after Evansville mayor Benjamin Bosse, Bosse Field opened in 1915 and is one of the oldest ballparks in the United States.

In its nine decades of baseball over a dozen minor league teams have played their home games at Bosse Field; however, it currently hosts the Evansville Otters, a franchise in the independent Frontier League. Bosse Field has been home to several Hall-of-Fame players working their way up to the Majors including Warren Spahn and Hank Greenberg.
