Long Description:
Located in front of the old Army-Navy Hospital on the north side of Reserve Street, about a block east of Central Avenue, this marker features identical text on both sides, and says:

Many baseball historians regard Ewing as the greatest all-around 19th century player. He came to the Army-Navy Hospital in Hot Springs in 1892, seeking medical advice for his sore throwing arm. On March 9th, after successful treatment, he hit a home run at the Hot Springs Baseball Grounds in an exhibition game against Cap Anson’s Colts (the Chicago Cubs).
