The Evansville Otters revealed their new, rebranded uniforms for the 2021 season at Bosse Field on Monday afternoon.

The team will be sporting three new uniforms heading into the 2021 season: White with the blue "Otters" text for at-home games, gray with the blue "Evansville" text for away games, and blue with white "Otters" text for either at-home or away games.

The new "home" white set features the blue "Otters" wordmark across the front, pairing with a new white hat with a blue script "E" insignia on the front and blue on the sides of the bill. The home set also includes white pants with blue belts and socks.

The road gray set signified the return of "Evansville" across the chest, as the team's preceding jersey combinations all had "Otters" across the front. The team says the "Evansville" script on that jersey will allow opposing teams to know where the Otters are from while they're on the road.

The alternate blue set, which the otters say can be utilized both at home and on the road, has a creamy white "Otters" script wordmark across the front.

According to the Otters, the strong presence of blue in the team’s new logo and uniforms is in tribute to when the Evansville Triplets arrived in Evansville and the colors they initially wore. The Triplets also had a long stint and baseball history in Evansville.

"There's a lot of history that went into consideration with these uniforms, one, because of Evansville, Bosse Field, a long history of professional baseball. So we wanted to kind of pay tribute to them with the classic traditional typeface," said Preston Leinenbach, Evansville Otters Director of Communications. "Everybody loves the script font on a lot of MLB jerseys, we wanted to get back to that for us, as well. And with the colors, paying tribute to the original Evansville Triplets."

The Otters will officially debut their new uniforms at the start of the 2021 Frontier League regular season. The team will play its first home game at Bosse Field on Saturday, May 29.

The players aren't the only ones getting an upgrade this season. Bosse Field, the team's home field and the third-oldest active ballpark in America, has received several renovations as well.

Monday's big reveal follows the team's March unveiling of its new logo and branding, which officials say is meant to emphasize the Evansville Otters as "Evansville's team."

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
