Major League Baseball (MLB) announced on Thursday that it has named both the American Association and the Frontier League as “Partner Leagues” of MLB.

The Evansville Otters are one of 14 teams within the Frontier League throughout the United States and Canada.

“The Evansville Otters are thrilled to now have a partnership arrangement with Major League Baseball,” Otters President John Stanley said. “The relationship with MLB is a first for the Frontier League and the Otters. Initially, there will be several opportunities to partner on community-related baseball promotions that will benefit the Otters and the community. It is pleasing to know that MLB chose only three Independent Leagues to be in the partnership group. There is excitement surrounding this partnership throughout the baseball world and we are anxious to get started with MLB."

As a designated MLB Partner League, the Frontier League will collaborate with MLB to jointly discuss marketing and promotional initiatives to grow, expand, and enhance the game of baseball.

The Otters play all home games at historic Bosse Field, located at 23 Don Mattingly Way in Evansville, Indiana.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
