Temperatures are warming up and that means Spring is back in the Tri-State. Before you know it, Summer will be here and the Evansville Otters will be back at Bosse Field to make a run at another Frontier League Championship. As they do every year, the team offers far more than nine innings of baseball on any given night. They also like to sprinkle in fun theme nights throughout the season to enhance the gameday experience, and recently announced what they have planned for the 2022 season.

Evansville Otters 2022 Promotional Schedule

The idea of theme nights is nothing new. Teams from nearly every sport imaginable incorporate them into games throughout the season in an effort to draw more fans to the ballpark, arena, or stadium. Themes will often incorporate current pop culture trends, or be centered around bringing awareness and raising funds for a specific cause.

According to a press release from the team announcing this year's schedule, all 51 home games will feature some type of theme. Some will repeat at multiple games throughout the season, while others will be one-time-only events. Let's take a look at a few of those nights to find out what the team has in store.

What: Fun fact I completely made up just now: When not putting bad guys in their place and keeping the world safe from alien invasions, superheroes like to relax by taking in a baseball game. The slower pace of the game is a welcome break from the fast-paced life of fighting evil. Kids are welcome to enjoy the game dressed as their favorite superhero, and superhero music will be featured throughout the game.

When: Saturday, May 21st

Princess Night

Fireworks, Fireworks, Fireworks!
