Backstory and Context
Lakefront once stood on the shores of Lake Michigan in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Now a marina, it is unclear when it stopped being used. The Kenosha Comets, an AAGPBL team, played their inaugural season there in 1943. They would call Lakefront Stadium home until 1947 before moving to Simmons Field in 1948 where they would remain until the team folded. In 1953, Joe Louis, a professional boxer, would hold his training session here in preparation for a title fight.
