Kenosha natives Tristan Jass, Mike Umscheid, Brandon Morris and Luke Reigel are among local stars participating in Legends Weekend, the Kenosha Kingfish announced on Wednesday.

The event kicks off with a home run derby at the Kenosha Harbor on Friday (Aug. 27), followed by a celebrity softball game on Saturday (Aug. 28) at Simmons Field.

The Legends Weekend lineup is highlighted by former Major League slugger Jose Canseco and Wisconsin sports legends Paul Molitor, Rollie Fingers, Geoff Jenkins, Bill Hall, Mike McKenzie and Montee Ball in what is expected to be a fan-friendly, star-studded weekend.

“I think it’s incredible that Kenosha is hosting an event like this,” said Umscheid, a 2002 Tremper High School graduate who played six seasons with USA Softball. “I’m very excited to meet the legends. I’m used to seeing their names in the Hall of Fame or on TV, so to be able to share a field with them feels surreal.”

Tickets are still available at KenoshaKingfish.com.
