The Evansville Otters are partnering with the city’s “E is for Everyone” campaign Aug. 18 when the defending Frontier League champions host the River City Rascals at Bosse Field.
“E is for Everyone” is a community initiative that helps connect, contribute and celebrate the great things about living in Evansville.
First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m. and gates will open an hour before. Admission to the game will be free with a special voucher courtesy of the campaign. Vouchers can be picked up at any Evansville public library in advance of the game and a limited number will also be available at the Otters front office.
Fans must have a ticket to enter, either with the campaign voucher or a regular game ticket. The first 500 fans through the gates will also receive a t-shirt.
The ballpark will have inflatables; clowns for face painting and the Boom Squad will be performing on the concourse. Plus, the police and fire department color guard will be in attendance. Special prizes will also be given away each half inning and winners must be present to redeem the prizes.
The Otters are very excited to host “E” Night sponsored by “E is for Everyone” and it promises to be a memorable night as we celebrate our city in one of its most iconic venues.
After the game, fans are encouraged to stay for a spectacular fireworks show and kids will be able to run the bases of Bosse Field and receive autographs from Otters players and coaches.
