Chicago Salmon Celebrate Their 24th 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. In addition we “barnstorm” on the road to downstate Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, and this year, Iowa's Field of Dreams. If you are interested in playing for the Chicago Salmon Vintage Base Ball Club - contact us.

Chicago Salmon Vintage Base Ball Club

The Chicago Salmon has a great time playing the vintage game of Base Ball that they love in Menomonie, Wisconsin last weekend. Thanks to the Menomonie Blue Caps for organizing this great event!Threatening storms held off until Sunday, and we enjoyed a beautiful day to play the best game in the land on Saturday morning and afternoon, followed by a great evening together at brewery nønic to recount our feats of the day.

Sunday's weather and field conditions cut the schedule short, and we appreciate everyone's flexibility. All in all we felt this year's edition of the festival was still a success.

The host of the public radio/tv show Wisconsin Life and her able crew were on hand to document (and participate in) the festival and we'll share more on that later when the episode airs.

Thanks again to our amazing volunteers, sponsors and of course, the cranks who cheer us on -- you're the best.

Galleries of Blue Caps matches will follow later this week, once the tintypes are processed.

You guys need to come back to Nashville at some point--and bring me a couple of pizzas from Lou Malnati's.
