Our office recently took an afternoon off for a teambuilding day at the ballpark. Though it was a scorching day in the 90s with high humidity, the home team and good friends made it an enjoyable outting. It truly felt like a sauna at times and I was very glad that I brought (and applied) plenty of sunscreen and water. No spa treatments are available yet at Citifield, but aficionados of sports and spa will score a healing homerun with a trip to the new Hawkeye Spa at The Otesaga Resort Hotel (Cooperstown, NY). Home to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, this Catskills town is also the site of the charming new spa. Using Naturopathica products, the spa offers a selection of soothing services, including The Otesaga Signature Massage ($125, 60 minutes) an aromatherapeutic deep-tissue soothing session that allows guests to choose among four enticing scents—cardamom, neroli blossom, balsam fir needles, and holy basil. After a busy day learning about baseball’s best, a session at the spa will feel like the ultimate grand slam.
