Chicago Salmon Celebrate Their 25th 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 Blue Island, Chicago, Des Plaines, and Oak Park. In addition we “barnstorm” on the road this year to Creston, Somonauk and downstate to Bloomington, and Decatur, 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.
