Why should you vote for Bosse Field?  Well first of all if you're from the Evansville area you know just how important the field is to us, and there's so much history in this old field.  It's where our Evansville Otters play every summer, and where scenes from A League of Their Own were filmed.  But those aren't even the coolest parts of Bosse Field.  Did you know Bosse Field is the 3rd oldest working ballpark in America?  It's true! Bosse Field opened in 1915 and is only behind Chicago's Wrigley Field which opened in 1914 and Boston's Fenway Park which opened in 1912. So it's really cool that over 100 years later, Bosse Field is still in use, and draws crowds every summer.
