Kingfish Unveil 2016 Plans In Front Of Standing Room Only Crowd

Kenosha, Wis. – It was standing room only at Lynch Chevrolet in Kenosha as the Kingfish unveiled upcoming stadium improvements, this summer’s bobblehead series and special events for 2016.

It was announced that the entire infield is getting redone and re-leveled, making the playing field one of the best in the Northwoods League. The work will start in April and be complete in time for Opening Day.

The Aurora Health Care Kid Zone will see a major improvement in 2016 with the addition of a 70’ long Snap-on inflatable zip line. The inflatable will feature two side by side lines. Kids will climb up the inflatable to the top of the zip line and cruise 70’ to the finish.

Also new this year, the 7-Game Pack will feature a rotating nightly food special. Specials may include chicken primavera pasta, smoked pulled chicken, seasoned and smoked pork chops, beef tips and rice, and more.
