In 2022, ZFC in partnership with Bill Fanning announced their investment in the Kenosha Kingfish, a popular Northwoods League baseball team based in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
The Kenosha Kingfish are members of the Northwoods League and feature elite collegiate baseball. Join us for affordable, family-friendly entertainment at historic Simmons Field!
Your game ticket delivers more than just great amateur baseball. The Kingfish are all about having fun and deliver great family entertainment with each inning break. Families with little ones won’t want to miss the Kid Zone, featuring a variety of games including a bounce house, sandbox and bobble-head ring toss. Be sure to bring your appetite too! The Kingfish serve up some of the most unique ballpark food around, plus a great selection of craft beers. On top of all this fun-and-games, a jam-packed promotional schedule always features creative themes for all the home games. Whether it is a fireworks show, bobble-head giveaway or even a human cannonball, the Kingfish are excited to offer a baseball experience unlike any other! Simmons Field is equipped with major league stadium seats from Camden Yards in Baltimore, and features premium venues for group outings and client entertainment.
A 43 foot long by 13 foot wide fishing boat built in the early 1930s and originally named the ‘Bambino’ is part of the outfield wall and serves as a party venue. The Bambino was long used as a commercial fishing boat in Chesapeake Bay and most recently resided at Mount Clemens Marine in Michigan. After securing permits in four states and traveling for nearly a day, the oversized load fishing boat arrived in April 2014, to be used for private parties during all Kingfish home games. The boat is physically a part of the outfield wall and gives Simmons Field the most unique outfield wall in all of baseball. The Bambino also houses the left field foul pole, doubling as a zip line, which the Kingfish mascot, King Elvis The First, uses to deliver the first pitch to the pitcher’s mound during every Kingfish home game.
Located right down the third base line, this area is home to baseball’s first outdoor regulation size permanent bowling alley, and is referred to as the “Shake, Rattle and Roll Zone” after the legendary Elvis Presley. There is a suggested minimum donation for fans to try and bowl for a strike on the bowling alley. Funds raised will go to support that night’s community partner.
Simmons Field opened in 1920 and has been the home field for many teams over the years, including the Kenosha Twins – a minor league team. The All-American Girls Professional Baseball League team Kenosha Comets played at two different locations in Kenosha, including Simmons Field. Another fun fact: In 1999, pop group ‘N Sync played a charity softball game at Simmons Field.
