It was a match that made sense: America’s Pastime and the American Spa. Growing up in the uncertain years following the U.S. Civil War, each played a role in healing a nation. By the end of the nineteenth century, both the sport and the city had made a name for themselves in the national press, leading to an encounter that would spark half a century of springtime rendezvous.

Join Hot Springs National Park Ranger Tyler Young on a virtual tour of baseball’s golden years in Hot Springs and a “Where Are They Now” look at how baseball’s notables and their Hot Springs haunts fared in the years following the breakup.
