Hot Springs Baseball Grounds
You are standing where the tradition of baseball spring training began. In 1886, baseball legends A. G. Spalding and Cap Anson brought the Chicago White Stockings (now the Cubs) to this field to train and play spring games. They were joined by fellow Hall of Famers Mike “King” Kelly and John Clarkson, as well as future evangelist Billy Sunday. On March 28, 1887, Cap Anson hit three home runs here.
