Camosy Construction of Kenosha will oversee the renovation of Simmons Field, as the 83-year-old ballpark is prepped to host summer-collegiate Northwoods League action beginning in 2014.
Out of four bidders, Camosy Construction was awarded the project after submitting the low bid for the City of Kenosha Public Works project. The project is a complete renovation, including two new concrete grandstands, dugouts and brick interior walls. The new Simmons Field will feature approximately 2,160 major league stadium seats from Baltimore’s Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Construction is scheduled to start the second week of June.
The team will also be holding a free public event in late August to unveil stadium renovations and the name and logo of Kenosha’s newest team, which owned by the same ownership group behind the Madison Mallards and Wisconsin Rapids Rafters.
The ballpark was formerly home to Low Class A Midwest and independent Frontier League action.
