EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) -The Evansville Otters have announced that the 2021 preseason tryouts originally scheduled for Apr. 23 and Apr. 25 in Allentown, Pa. and Evansville, Ind., respectively, are canceled.

The tryouts were canceled due to unforeseen circumstances.

Any player who registered for the canceled tryouts will be contacted with more information and will receive a full refund.

The canceled tryouts have no effect on the Frontier League’s tryout camp and draft in May or the start of the 2021 season. Both will go on as scheduled with the Frontier League regular season starting May 27.

The Frontier League’s tryout camp and draft will take place May 10-11 at Mercy Health Stadium in Avon, Ohio, home of the Lake Erie Crushers.

Prospects should stay tuned for more information that will be provided later about future tryout camps.

The Otters will host a post-draft tryout later this summer, and more information on that tryout will be posted soon.

The Evansville Otters apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see these players on the field soon.

If any players who registered for the Allentown or Evansville tryout have any questions, contact Andy McCauley via email at
