Dating back to the American Civil War, the history of baseball in Savannah is as rich as any other of the sport's iconic cities. Hosting a variety of amateur teams in the late 19th century, professional baseball arrived in Savannah in 1904. From "Shoeless" Joe Jackson to Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle to Dale Murphy, a long list of nationally known hall-of-famers and all-stars have played on Savannah's ball fields. Images of Baseball: Baseball in Savannah chronicles the sport's amateur beginnings through the Savannah Sand Gnats.
