The Kenosha Twins began play in the Midwest League in 1984 when the club relocated from Wisconsin Rapids. In 1992, the team was sold, and the following year, they moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana where they became known as the Fort Wayne Wizards. They played their home games at Simmons Field, located on Sheridan Road near the shore of Lake Michigan in Kenosha. They won two Midwest League championships, in 1985 and 1987, and were Northern Division champions for the first half of the 1988 season.

Some notable alumni of the Twins include Chuck Knoblauch, Eddie Guardado, Lenny Webster, Paul Abbott, and Willie Banks.
