A former broadcaster for the Evansville Otters has passed away.

Evansville Otters tells us Mike Radomski, 29, died in a car accident early Thursday morning in Florida.

"Mike was a beloved member of the Otters community,” Otters owner Bill Bussing said. “He came here as an employee, but left as a dear friend to many of us.”

Radomski served the Otters’ as an Account Executive and Director of Media Relations while he was in Evansville.

“It's difficult to walk into the press box at Bosse Field and not think about his legacy," Bussing added.

He broadcasted games on WUEV 91.5 FM alongside Bill McKeon between 2010 and 2015 and hosted Otters Insider, a weekly talk show with manager Andy McCauley and players. Radomski called more than 550 games for the Otters, the most of any Otters broadcaster.

“Mike was a great ambassador for the league for six seasons,” Deputy Commissioner Steve Tahsler said. “We are saddened by the news and we send our thoughts to his family.”

In 2014, he became the Director of Media Relations at the University of Evansville where he oversaw media aspects for women’s basketball, baseball, men’s and women’s soccer for the Purple Aces.

After a year at UE, Radomski took a job at the University of South Florida in the same capacity, overseeing media aspects for men’s basketball, cross country and track.
