Home of the Kenosha Comets, of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, from 1943 to 1947.


  • The lakefront today, presumably where the stadium once stood.
  • Kenosha Comets team picture, circa 1943
  • The banner on the stadium announcing the fighter's training in Kenosha.

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.
