Take the Field, Travel Back in Time
Nestled in the majestic Ouachita Mountains, Hot Springs National Park became known as America’s First Resort for its naturally thermal waters, luxury hotels, lively nightlife, fine dining and exciting outdoors. In 1886, Cap Anson brought his Chicago White Stockings (now the Cubs) to Hot Springs for the start of something new: spring training. As many as 250 professional baseball players, including some of the biggest legends of the game, convened here in The Spa City each spring for training and recreation. Walk in their footsteps on the Hot Springs Baseball Trail, featuring 32 stops. Use this brochure to plan your tour.
