We truly have an awesome piece of baseball history in the Tri-State with our very own Bosse Field. Did you know Bosse Field is the third oldest working ball park in the country? Yep! Right behind the legendary Wrigley Field and Fenway! We truly have a piece of history to be proud of right here in the heart of Evansville!
MeetingsToday.com recently recognized Bosse Field along with Wrigley and Fenway when highlighting 5 different historic ball parks that are great for hosting events. And if you've ever been to an event at Bosse Field, you understand why! I mean just look at SWIRCA's Brew Fest! It's jam packed every year!
Here's what MeetingsToday said about Bosse Field:
The line “there’s no crying in baseball” from 1992’s A League of Their Own was made famous at Bosse Field, the filming location for the beloved movie starring Tom Hanks and Gina Davis.
But Bosse Field’s history goes back further than that, to its construction in 1915, making it the third oldest ballpark in the U.S.
Home to the Evansville Otters of the Independent Frontier League, Bosse Field may not be a major league baseball stadium, but it still packs history that any sports fan will appreciate.
Less than a three-hour drive from four big cities—Indianapolis, Louisville, Nashville and St. Louis—groups on the hunt for a day trip can rent out the stadium for corporate parties, seminars or even their own baseball tournament.
It was cool to see our little piece of Evansville highlighted along with ballparks like Wrigley and Fenway. Definitely something we should be proud of! Check out the full article from MeetingsToday.com, by clicking here!
