A name has been chosen for Owensboro’s new minor league basketball team. 

After a three-week naming contest that saw hundreds of suggestions, the winning name for the new franchise is the Kentucky Thoroughbreds. 

In a news release, the North American Premier Basketball League says Thoroughbreds was the clear front-runner in the naming contest.

The contest winner will be drawn October 21st, when General Manager and Head Coach Brandon Lesovsky will draw at random from everyone who suggested the name.

The 25th anniversary of the filming of “A League of Their Own” will be celebrated at Bosse Field next month. 

The historic ballpark in Evansville’s Garvin Park played a major role in the movie about a women’s baseball league during World War II.

Evansville Otters Vice President Joel Padfield says remnants of the filming remain…

(Such as the Racine Belles boxes and the wartime stamp ads in the tunnels. Remembering this movie is a big deal  for Evansville and the community.)
