Chicago Salmon Vintage Base Ball Club

Sunday's Deep River Grinders 1:00 PM, Sunday, July 23rd game has been moved to Lincoln Park in Chicago due to the continued flooding of the Historic Methodist Campground of Des Plaines.

The flood waters covering most of the Historic Methodist Campground of Des Plaines have not receded enough, nor have the grounds dried out enough, for us to safely play a game of base ball there this Sunday. www.hmc1860.org

The Chicago Salmon's Lincoln Park field is on the east side of the Chicago History Museum, 1601 N. Clark St., Chicago, IL 60614.

To access the field take North Avenue, IL 64, east of the Chicago History Museum.

• The museum parking lot is located at the corner of Stockton and La Salle.
• Or you can park at the parking garage on North Avenue, about three blocks west of the museum. 800 W North Ave, Chicago,
• Or the apartment parking garage across the street from the ball field, CASH ONLY.
