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.

This Saturday, October 5, the Chicago Salmon will play the Milwaukee Grays at 1:00 PM, for our last game of the year.

We will travel to Doctors Park just north of Milwaukee at 1870 E Fox Lane, Fox Point, WI. See the attached map.

- Once you get in the parking lot it should be pretty easy to find. They're in field area 3 on the map.

- If you have some time before or after the game, the park is right on the bluffs of Lake Michigan, with hiking trails that go down to the beach. Just north of us is also the Schlitz Audubon Center, which has some great hiking/walking trails and also beach access along the lake.

Strike well and no injuries!

On Sunday, September 29th, at 1:00 PM, the Chicago Salmon will play a nine inning match against our friends the Somonauk Blue Stockings.

The Blue Stockings have moved their ball field to a different location in Community Park.

Once you get to Depot Street off of US 34 you should be about 4 short blocks from the Somonauk Community Park. The park is past the first stop sign but not past the second one as you head south on Depot Street. It is on the right side of the street just before Depot Street, Gage Street and Hoxie Street come together. If you get to the second stop sign you will have missed the park entrance. You will pass the Village Hall and Bank on the way.

Or use 500 S Depot St, Somonauk, IL 605521
