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.

I believe the final tally was 54 Ganymedes to 8 for the Chicago Salmon.On a hot, sunny afternoon at Iron Chest Field, the Ganymedes nine bested the Chicago Salmon Base Ball Club in a high scoring affair. There were several great plays made by both clubs. Tyler “Timber King” Grant had the hit of the game with a grand slam up the first base line. “Lawman”, the Salmon left fielder had the catch of the game when he one-handed a Rick “The Rip” Krug line drive on the fly. A truly huzzah play that stopped the game for recognition.

Our next matches will be in two weeks at the World Tournament of Historic Base Ball at the Henry Ford Museum / Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan. Hope to see some familiar cranks among the crowd.
