Bosse Field is a baseball stadium located in Evansville, Indiana. Opened in 1915, it was the first municipally owned sports stadium in the United States and is the third-oldest ballpark still in regular use for professional baseball, surpassed only by Fenway Park (1912) in Boston and Wrigley Field (1914) in Chicago.It is the home field for the professional minor league Evansville Otters of the independent Frontier League, as well as high school and American Legion games, and in the past hosted spring training for the Detroit Tigers, college baseball, high school, college, and NFL football, college soccer, and concerts. Five Baseball Hall of Fame members played for Evansville teams at Bosse Field during their minor league careers, including Chuck Klein, Hank Greenburg, Warren Spahn, Bob Uecker, and Bert Blyleven. The historic stadium was also used in 1991 by Columbia Pictures for filming numerous game scenes in the movie A League of Their Own.

  • Walking through this place and watching a baseball game reminded us so much of the movie "A League of Their Own", which was actually filmed here. Great atmosphere. We've been here for multiple functions and loved them all.
  • Went there with family and kids had a great time runnin the bases and I got to teach them a valuable lesson about drug abuse when the guy next to us started to nod off like an opiate addict. Kudos to EPD and staff that handled it calmly. Addicts need treatment and that's how he was treated.
  • Great venue for professional baseball. It’s also a great historic site since many professional sports teams have played there. A little rustic, but that’s what you should expect from a 92-year old stadium. Definitely recommend a visit.
