The Birthplace of MLB Spring Training
Friends, customers and baseball fans are always welcome at Tanners facilities in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Our headquarters is nestled in the countryside of America’s heartland, in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains, just a few miles from the natural thermal baths at Hot Springs National Park. The city of Hot Springs is steeped in baseball history, making it a unique setting for a company like Tanners. Hot Springs’ ties to MLB began as early as 1886 with the arrival of the Chicago White Stockings (forerunner of the Chicago Cubs) for spring training, where players could “boil out” the off season with hot baths, run the mountain roads, and play baseball. By the 1940’s every major league team had trained in the Spa City resort town – including baseball legends like Babe Ruth, Rogers Hornsby, Cy Young, Honus Wagner, and Satchel Page.
