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.

The Chicago Salmon will not be playing their match with the Milwaukee Cream Citys in Wisconsin. It has been canceled out of an abundance of caution and care for the team, and their families, as a result of Mayor Lori Lightfoot's announcement, Monday, July 27, that Wisconsin will be added to the list of states where anyone spending 24 hours or more will be directed to self-quarantine for 14 days.

It's nice to see people stepping up and being responsible. It's been the irresponsibility that has put us all in this position to begin with.

Our next game will be this coming Sunday in Valparaiso, Indiana, July 26 at 1:00 PM. We will play at the Valparaiso Lookouts (Colonels) site in Valparaiso at 1:00 pm. We are the home team :)

We will be playing at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Valparaiso Indiana. 1700 Monticello Park Drive. Pull in the back lot.The field is to the southeast corner of the property.

The weather report for Sunday in Valparaiso calls for a temperature of 88 degrees and partly sunny. As you will recall when we played there last year there was no shade. If you have a pop up or golf umbrella you may want to bring it to the game.

So far I expect to see Lawman, Iron Jaw, Scooter, Barber, Whiplash, Sketch, Flapjack, Pipes, Dizzy, and Zeus, possibly Buddha at Valparaiso.

Keep in mind that Governor Eric Holcomb announced Indiana will begin mandating face coverings statewide starting Monday, July 27. The mandate will apply to anyone 8 years old or older in indoor public spaces, commercial entities, transportation services and outdoor areas where social distancing is not possible. Holcomb said it will continue as long as its needed.Exemptions will be made for medical purposes, strenuous physical activity, and eating and drinking.

The following Saturday, August 1, we will be at Milwaukee, WI to play the Cream Citys at 1:00 PM. I will let you know more about the exact location next week.

Once again, our plan is to play the rest of the games on the 2020 Chicago Salmon Schedule, weather and health conditions permitting. We will play our remaining Lincoln Park "home" games on an alternate site for safety reasons, either in Illinois or Indiana. Please check chicagosalmon.org to stay up to date.
