The Eastman Hotel

Built in 1890, the elegant, 500-room Eastman Hotel was a hub for te baseball community in the early 20th century. Here Babe Ruth flipped a coin to settle his 1921 salary dispute with the Yankees. In 1925, Walter Johnson received a hero's welcome upon returning to town after his World Series triumph and awed guests on the veranda by pitching on the hotel lawn.
