Evansville Otters ready for today's home opener

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

The Evansville Otters have a double-header for this year's season home opener.

They play the Rockford Aviators Wednesday with Mayor Lloyd Winnecke throwing out the first pitch at 5:35. The second game is scheduled to start at 7:45.

In between games, American Medical Response employees will be training everyone in hands-only CPR as part of their world-wide CPR challenge.

Fans will have plenty of opportunities to watch the home team as the Otters continue their homestand at Bosse Field through Memorial Day weekend.

On Thursday, fans can enjoy $2 Budweiser drafts while watching the team play the Aviators 6:35 p.m.

Friday marks the beginning of the weekend series against the Frontier Greys. 

If an Otters player hits a grand slam in the fifth inning, one lucky fan will win $53,000 from Fifth Third Bank. Other fans will have a chance to win $53 gift cards throughout and one fan will win a $253 gift card in the ninth inning.

Games on Friday and Saturday start at 6:35 p.m. and the series ends with a game at 5:05 on Sunday.

14 News Sunrise reporter Deanna Allbrittin met Evan the Otter at the field Wednesday morning to see if they were fit for the Otters team. Watch the video above to see how they did.
