Vintage Baseball 
Next Game - JULY 7 - 1PM


Civil War Era Base Ball Clubs play at least one game a year at the Historic Methodist Campground for 22+ seasons, and proudly supports ongoing preservation and restoration efforts to save this historic site for future generations.


Stop by and watch or play in a match of 1858 Vintage Base Ball.   Individual vintage base ball players from Chicago area teams are invited to join in a nine inning "pick up game" of base ball. Here is your players chance to help out this 1860's historic site.   Matches are played amongst the oak trees in Grove 3.  


To learn the rules of the game, the schedule and more visit the Chicago Salmon or Ellie Presents.
