Chicago Salmon Celebrate Their Silver Anniversary 26th 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 Naper Setlement, Blue Island, Chicago, and Des Plaines. In addition we “barnstorm” on the road this year to  Somonauk and downstate to Bloomington, and Philo, Illinois; Douglas, and Benton Harbor, Michigan; Hobart, Indianapolis, Nappanee, and Valparaiso, Indiana; and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. If you are interested in playing for the Chicago Salmon Vintage Base Ball Club - contact us.

The Salmon earned their first win at our Season Opener this afternoon, besting the House of David Echoes 18-7. A great match was played by all. Huge thanks to the House of David Echoes and Springfield Long Nine subs for making the trip out to the Historic Methodist Campground, and thanks to Boss Lady for preparing the fabulous feast after the match.
