Playoff Push in Kenosha
The Kenosha Kingfish are in the hunt for a home playoff game at Historic Simmons Field. The Kingfish (22-10, 35-31) have a 3.5 game lead in the NWL South Division second half standings. If the Kingfish win the second half, they would host a home at 7:05 pm, Monday, August 13th. The magic number for the Kingfish to clinch a spot is three.
The Kingfish have a 3.5 game lead over the Battle Creek Bombers. Any combination of three Kingfish wins or Bombers losses would result in Kenosha clinching a playoff berth. The Kingfish are ahead of the Madison Mallards by four games and can eliminate Madison of the second half title by a combination of two Kingfish wins or Mallards losses.
Playoff tickets will go on-sale to the general public at 9:00 am on Wednesday, August 8th. Fans may purchase tickets for any of the possible playoff games and will be refunded or credited for 2019 tickets, if the potential playoff games are not played.
