For Immediate Release
Huntingburg, IN - Riding off of the success of the 2023 season, the Dubois County Bombers have announced that they will be joining the nationally renowned Prospect League beginning next season in 2024. The Prospect League is one of the oldest, most respected, and most competitive collegiate summer baseball leagues in the nation that’s comprised of 18 teams across Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee and Pennsylvania.
The league is widely recognized and acknowledged as having the largest and highest quality facilities (stadiums) in the nation. The league has seen more than 800 of its players reach their dreams of playing professional baseball and as a result receives significant support from baseball coaches and scouts from across the U.S.
“For our organization and for our fans, this is a dream come true,” noted Owner & Team President Justin Knepp. “The success of our 2023 season caught the attention of the league and we received an invitation to join. It’s an honor and an opportunity that we simply could not pass up. This will allow our team on the field to compete against the very best of the best every night.”
All teams in the Prospect League play a 56 game regular-season schedule, which would guarantee a record 28 Bomber home games at League Stadium each season moving forward.
“The competition will be better, the stadiums are the best in summer baseball, and the national appeal and attention is higher,” added co-owner Ara Knepp. “The exposure this will create for our players and for Dubois County is surreal.”
The Prospect League carries significant momentum into the 2023 offseason with the league recently setting multiple attendance records, including a 23% increase in fan attendance compared to 2022. Total fan attendance in the Prospect League was the best among all summer collegiate leagues.
The Bombers will be exiting the Ohio Valley League, where they have competed since 2013.
The Dubois County Bombers are now hiring for a Front Office Manager for the 2024 season and beyond. This is a seasonal (summer) position with a highly competitive salary commensurate with experience.
Given the explosive growth of the team in the 2023 season, we are looking for a candidate with incredible organizational and communication skills to help manage multiple front office duties during the season. This will be a highly visible position within the organization.
This is a hybrid commute position with the ideal candidate needing to be available to work in the team's newly renovated front office at League Stadium throughout the day during the week as needed, while also having ample opportunities to work from home throughout the week as well. The ideal candidate will also be expected to work during every Bombers home game (from about 5:30pm - 10:30pm). Again, the schedule will provide a lot of flexibility. Some days will absolutely require the position to be at the stadium during the day, while other days will allow work from home. No two days will be the same.
Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
-Assisting with invoicing of group ticket sales and advertising packages.
-Managing and ordering inventory in our gift shop, stadium bars, and more.
-Assisting with the planning & management of our unique, one-of-a-kind promo nights.
-Answering the team phone and answering team-related emails from fans and vendors alike.
-Ordering meals in advance for the team for road trips.
-Helping to manage the delivery of items to stadium.
-Being available to assist with school field trips touring the stadium.
-Managing several aspects of game day.
The ideal candidate might be someone who has summers off--such as teachers, professors, etc. The position will report directly to the Team President.
If you love Bombers baseball, are well-organized, energetic, great with communication, and available to work full time each week during the months of June & July, this position is for you.
The Dubois County Bombers are considered among the best, if not THE best organization in summer baseball. We're looking for the right person who believes that and will help us keep it that way. We want this person to become a permanent fixture of our team each season moving forward.
