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.

We will be taking time to give back to the Historic Methodist Campground for the twenty years that they have supported the Chicago Salmon. We have volunteered to repair and repaint their picnic tables. Please let me know what you can donate both time and treasure to help them out.
