Chicago Salmon Celebrate Their 20th Season

Welcome to the website of the Chicago Salmon - Vintage Base Ball Club.

We play a vintage style of base ball dating back to 1858 and are affiliated with the Vintage Base Ball Association. We have a roster consisting of players from around the Chicagoland area and have matches against other area teams and “barnstorm” on the road to Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. If you are interested in playing for the Chicago Salmon Vintage Base Ball Club - contact us.

2015 Season

The 2015 Chicago Salmon Season will find us playing as many as thirty one events. Nine “home games” will be played, eight in Lincoln Park east of the Chicago History Museum, and one at the Des Plaines Historic Methodist Campground. Think about joining our 2015 barnstorming journey either as a player or a "crank."
