Bossie Field is one of the most historic ball parks in the country....and they filmed some of "A League of Their Own" there. Ask any Evansvillian what Evansville's claim to fame is, and that would be one of the most popular answers.

Yankee great, Don Mattingly is an Evansville native. Some would say that he is Evansville's Favorite Son. He used to have a restaurant on Evansville's east side called Mattingly 23, and he still gives back to his hometown with Mattingly Charities.
Apparently the seasons don't matter in Evansville. One day it's sunny and 80 degrees, the next it is 32 degrees and people are making snowmen in their yard.
Everyone from Evansville knows that one of its other claim to fame is the Roseanne House. It is the house that was featured in the sitcom, "Roseanne." The house itself was only used for its exterior whenever they would show the house on TV. The inside looks noting like what the house did on the show...but still a cool Evansville fact!
The Lloyd Expressway is Evansville's biggest road. It's an expressway with stoplights (which is weird), but it is also usually under construction. Everyone knows that if you want to avoid construction or delays, avoid the Lloyd!
