Evansville Otters Looking For OnField MC

I'm not going to lie, I would absolutely love to contribute and be a part of the Evansville Otters, especially in such an outgoing way.  However, time constraints would prohibit me from applying for such a position.  Perhaps my need to partake of adult beverages at Otter games might as well. 😉

You can find the latest available job openings for the 2010 Otter Baseball Season clicking here.  Other than the MC position, there are also positions available for Press Box Matrix Board Worker and bat boys, which is only available to 13-16 year olds.

To submit your application or for Otter employment questions please contact:

Brandon McClish @ 812-435-8686 or by email at bmcclish@evansvilleotters.com

Don't forget, opening day 2010 will be May 21st, which will also be Fifth Third promotional night.

Saturday Night Otters Game

The Evansville Otters game last night was simply amazing!  Truly one of the best Otter Baseball games I've seen in a long time.  It's a shame they don't play like this every game, they could not be stopped.  Of course, 3 errors by the Crushers didn't hurt either. 😉

Thanks go out to my parents for watching my daughter so my wife and friends could go out for the evening.  Also, being penny pinchers we were pleased to be given 2 free tickets.  Thanks to the anonymous stranger.

Tee Time Evansville Course Terrible

Had the opportunity to play a little golf last night with my brother over at Tee Time on the Eastside of Evansville.  Seemed like it would be an ideal evening, considering the weather was beautiful and for $5 for 9 holes you almost can't go wrong...right?

Unfortunately, Tee Time has let their little course go south, fast.  Earlier on in the year their greens were beautiful, course neatly mowed, and everything just looked real professional.  However, last night all the greens had terrible divots, big patches of the course weren't mowed, and sections were just a muddy mess with no walk way.  Making matters worse was the Geese shit that was absolutely everywhere.

In all honesty, until they get things cleaned up out there, the course out at Howell Park is much nicer.  Believe it or not I'd pass on this executive course that's just not cutting it anymore.

Howell Park Golf Course

Went golfing last night at around 5 at Howell Park.  To be honest I'm very pleased with how well they take care of that little Par3 course.  The greens were in decent shape, areas were freshly mowed, and even the chipping green looked finely manicured.  Unfortunately, there just aren't enough hours in the day to enjoy the inexpensive course as often as I would like.

Howell Park closes at 6:300 through the week and even if you are in the middle of your game they will change flags out on you.  While this isn't that big of a deal, consider that Wesselmans leaves their flags out and will stay open till it gets dark.  Why is this city course not on the same hours as the rest of the city golf courses in Evansville?

Hopefully Howell will amend their hours as it gets longer into the summer.  Right now it's staying daylight until just after 8:00 and come July all the way up until 9:00.  I'd like to be able to head over to Howell Park around 6:00 and have plenty of time to get 18 holes in.  As it stands now, getting off work at 5 and heading over to the course, they won't even let you pay for more than 9 holes after 5:30.
