Chicago Salmon Celebrate Their 23rd 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 downstate Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Kansas. If you are interested in playing for the Chicago Salmon Vintage Base Ball Club - contact us.

The Chicago Salmon had a great time at Cowtown this Summer. Hopefully the city government of Wichita will not cut the funding for it’s operation in 2019. It is a crown jewel of the city of Wichita!

We need to make a showing. The museum needs the voices of its volunteers and public, now more than ever.

We are a Wichita City Museum and we need their support.

The 2019 Wichita Annual Operating Budget for 2018-2027 Capital Improvement will make a direct impact on Old Cowtown Museum. While we understand that, a budget is required to operate a city and I am in no way bad-mouthing our City Council. I ask that no one else does either, as they have a difficult job creating a budget and making choices which are correct to assist all aspects of our city. The choices which are being made regarding the Museum, may very well, drastically affect and change Cowtown as you know it.

How? It will become a non-profit museum. Its staff will be reduced –DRASTICALLY! It will most likely lose its accreditation and consequently, will be out of the running for museum grants.

The city is looking to return to a model that was in place in 2006, before they took over operation of the museum. At that time, if you recall, Cowtown was struggling mightily.

The museum needs the voices of its volunteers and public, now more than ever.

August 14th, Tuesday, 9 am … 1st floor Wichita City Building… show up to state (politely) why Old Cowtown Museum is important.

Or, take a moment to (politely) write your District Rep.
