Evansville Otters Accepting Applications for 2023 Gameday Staff
If you or someone you know is a baseball fan, this could be a great opportunity to get more involved in the game and get paid for it.
In order for the Evansville Otters to "play ball" at Bosse Field, it takes a ton of people behind the scenes to make sure the ballpark is ready to go not only for the team and their opponent but to make sure the fans who show up to take in a game get taken care of as well. There need to be people on hand to sell tickets at the gate and people just inside the gate to take those tickets and tear off the stubs. There need to be people on the ground crew to get the field looking good and ready for the game, and people in the concessions stand to make, sell, and serve soft drinks, hot dogs, and popcorn. The list goes on and on. As the players prepare for the start of the season coming up in May, the front office staff is beginning its search for the people to fill those positions.

Otters Hosting In-Person Job Fair
You'll also have the opportunity to apply in person during the team's upcoming job fair at Bosse Field on Tuesday, March 14th from 4:00 until 6:00 PM. The fair will also offer on-the-spot interviews, meaning it's entirely possible you could leave there with a job.
The Otters begin their season with home exhibition games on May 3rd, 5th, and 9th before starting a three-series home stand from May 12th through the 21st against the Washington Wild Things, the Ottawa Titans, and the Trois-Rivieres Aigles, respectively. You can find the complete season schedule on the team's website.
