Bosse Field

Built1915

Many today know Bosse Field as the home of the Frontier League Evansville Otters, but since its construction in 1915, ten other baseball teams have called the field home.

Named for then mayor, Benjamin Bosse, who bought Garvin Park for the city and championed the stadium, Bosse Field's opening day was declared a city-wide holiday, complete with a parade.

The historical significance of Bosse Field goes beyond the filming of Columbia Pictures 1991 movie 'A League of Their Own' — it's the third oldest ballpark in the nation, only surpassed in age by Fenway Park (1912) and Wrigley Field (1914).
