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.
