The Kenosha Comets were one of the first four teams in the AAGPBL In 1943. Two of the first players to be assigned to a team were Shirley Jamison and Ann Harnett. They both had been models for the team uniforms and were excellent ball players. Jamison played third base for the Comets and led the league in stolen bases and runs scored in 1943 and was a member of the first All-Star Team. Ann Harnett was multi-talented playing at third base for the Comets and batting an average of .222 over her 5 seasons of play in the AAGSBL League. She earned an Annual Honor bestowed upon the best player for each position by all the club managers.
Other stars in the 1943 season were Helen Nicol. Helen was called “Nickie” by her teammates and was an All-Star Pitcher for the team. Nicki pitched in 47 games and touted an ERA of 1.81 for the season, and won 31 games while only losing 8. Nickie was one of many Canadian players recruited to play in the League over the years.
The Comets posted the third-best record of the league at 56-52, won the second-half title (33-21), and earned a ticket to the playoffs. The Comets were swept in three games by the Racine Belles who went on to win the Championship.
