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.

We're still waiting on the actual cold front to get here. That should arrive around dawn, bringing mainly light rain. The front may also be responsible for perking up a couple bands of heavier rain and lightning east of Evansville for midday Saturday.
