Chicago Salmon Celebrate Their 26th 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 at Naper Setlement, Blue Island, Chicago, and Des Plaines. In addition we “barnstorm” on the road this year to  Somonauk and downstate to Bloomington, and Philo, Illinois; Douglas, and Benton Harbor, Michigan; Hobart, Valparaiso, and Nappanee, Indiana; and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. If you are interested in playing for the Chicago Salmon Vintage Base Ball Club - contact us.
