Evansville Otters presenting 2nd virtual game broadcast

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The Evansville Otters are hosting a virtual event Tuesday night, showing one of last year’s games.

With the Frontier League championship baseball season canceled due to the coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic, the Otters once again want to bring Evansville Otters baseball and the Bosse Field experience straight to our fans virtually in the safety and comfort of their own homes. The virtual broadcast will feature a re-broadcast of the July 26, 2019 home game against the Windy City Thunderbolts with new commentary.

The re-broadcast will include interviews with Otters president John Stanley, the Otters coaching staff with field manager Andy McCauley, and some members of the local sports media. There will also be interviews with current and former players, such as outfielder Elijah MacNamee, pitcher Randy Wynne of the Cincinnati Reds organization, Jeff Leystra from the inaugural 1995 Otters team, and Denver Stuckey from the 2003-05 Otters clubs.

The Evansville Thunderbolts’ mascot, Pride, will participate in the ceremonial first pitch, and an OttersTV segment will walk through the Otters Gift Shop, which is open for business, to show items available for purchase. Plus, fans will recognize other familiar sights and sounds that they would normally experience on a game day at Bosse Field.

DATE/TIME: Tuesday, July 28 6:15 p.m. CST
