The Kingfish finished their inaugural campaign in the Northwoods League 41-30, good for third in the Northwoods League South Division and only a half game out of the playoffs last season. Manager and 1969 Miracle Mets team member Duffy Dyer returns for his second year at the helm of the Kingfish. 11 other returning players from the 2014 Kingfish squad will also be back in Kenosha this summer.
