Chicago Salmon Celebrate Their 21st 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 Iowa.
