You can't see me, so you'll just have to take my word for it when I say I've got a pretty big grin on my face. I am a generally happy fella, but my mood is even better these days because baseball season is here. College baseball is in full swing (pun kind of intended), and high school baseball and Major League Baseball will be here before the end of March. Then we only have to wait until May for the Evansville Otters to take the field.

As the Otters continue to prepare for the 2024 season, they just released the team's promotional calendar - in other words, the special occasions or themed games. The fact is, just about every home game has some sort of promotional tie-in, just in case you needed another reason to go watch a ball game at historic Bosse Field.
