BOSSE FIELD IN EVANSVILLE INDIANA! Home of the Home of the Evansville Otters of the Frontier League and is a treasure built in 1915.

This ballpark's classification has been as high as Triple - A when Bosse Field served as a home for the Evansville Triplets from 1970 to 1984 in the American Association. The ballpark's biggest claim to fame was, as a home to the famed "Triple-I League"... (Indiana, Illinois, Iowa) on and off from 1919 to 1957.

Many hall of fame players have called Bosse Field home over the last 90 or so years. These include Hank Greenburg, Warren Spahn and Chuck Klein. Mark "The Byrd" Fydrich, Kirk Gibson, and Lance Parrish.

The last professional minor league "crown" was won here in 1979 when then, Evansville Manager Jim Leyland (later World Series winning manager for the Florida Marlins) led the Evansville Triplets to the American Association Triple-A championship.

In addition to World Series Winner Jim Leyland, White Sox Manager Jerry Manuel and Pittsburgh Pirates Manager Gene Lamont have spent summers in the dugouts of Bosse Field.

Bosse Field was also one of the primary facilities used in the taping of "A League of Their Own" the Penny Marshall film about professional women's baseball in the 1940s. At the back of the seating area on both sides are large signs that say "Support the Racine Belles" (from the movie). Besides being home to the Otters today, Bosse Field was also home to the Evansville Triplets, a Triple A team of the Detroit Tigers in the 1970s and 1980s.
