Chicago Salmon Celebrate Their 23rd 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 and “barnstorm” on the road to downstate Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Kansas.

This Saturday, September 22nd, the Chicago Salmon will play the Milwaukee Grays at 1:00 PM.

The Chicago Salmon 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 Audobon Center, which has some great hiking/walking trails and also beach access along the lake.
