The Kenosha Kingfish, Duke’s Country Saloon, and Coins Sports Bar are excited to announce a great new addition to Historic Simmons Field in 2021! Located right down the third base line, this new 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. Jerry Cousin, co-owner of C-Squared Hospitality—the parent company of Duke’s and Coins—said in a statement, “We couldn’t be more excited about our partnership with the Kenosha Kingfish and the opportunity to help support not-profit organizations here in Kenosha.” The Shake, Rattle and Roll Zone will have a suggested minimum donation for fans to try and bowl for a strike on the newly installed bowling alley. Funds raised will go to support that night’s community partner.
In addition to the Shake, Rattle and Roll bowling alley, the renovated zone contains bags, our Leinie’s Lodge, and our “Big Oinker” sandwich. This sandwich is a one-pound meat paradise with shaved ham, pulled pork, bacon, and Gorman Thomas’s famous sauce! If these ingredients make your mouth water, be sure to stop by Piggly Wiggly who is sponsoring the Sandwich!
The Grand Opening is this Friday, June 11th, and will feature the Coins and Dukes Hospitality Team to make sure everyone is having a great time while they enjoy drink specials, bowling, and great food! Kingfish fans will not want to miss this Grand Opening which will feature half-priced Leinenkugel Summer Shandies as well as half-priced Big Oinkers by Stinebrink’s Piggly Wiggly!
“We are excited for this great new area and can’t wait for people to experience the great new features here at our historic stadium,” said Team President Steve Malliet. He would go on to say, “Kingfish Baseball has and always will be about great entertainment at an affordable price and you absolutely don’t need to be a baseball fan to have a great time here at Historic Simmons Field.”
