Loads of history here and yiou can actually walk on the field where it all supposedly began. The fun is watching all of the young kids pretend that they are the batting heroes and the smiles are engaging to all who watch. I remember as a young kid how I first felt some 60 years ago. Full of Awe.

What a cool field! It has a touch of Fenway, Wrigley, and you can almost see what ball parks used to be at Doubleday Field. I didn't know that they used to play all-star games here. How cool would have it been to go see Mickey Mantle step to the plate. All I have to say is thank you for... More

Stopped at the field to find a game going on. It was fun to see the teams (40+ men) playing and having a great time. The field is well taken care of and we enjoyed experiencing the nostalgia. So much fun!!!

I just walked around the outside of the field as they were preparing for a game to be played. I love walking this place and feel the history. It is a beautiful and well maintained field.

The field definitely has the old feel to it. It's my second time visiting Cooperstown, and I've stopped by each time. There was a youth game being played and my wife sat up behind home plate and took in a few innings. My wife brought it to my attention that the field looked familiar to her, she remembered seeing it... More

We were there in May 2005 for the Red Sox vs Tigers, but yesterday, we just walked over to admire some youth baseball teams. Cool seeing where baseball began!

It feels like a built-up high school field. While you don't expect modern conveniences, it just doesn't feel old or special. Have been there for events and the bleacher style seats are rough on the back and the sight-lines can be obstructed.

This is a quaint little field. Very old fashion feel, very well maintained. Just wished the parking was free.

For those that love the game, Doubleday Field is a must see. Our son liked the fact that Babe Ruth had played there. We even caught a couple innings of a game between to Canadian teams.

There is nothing flamboyant about it, just the feel form a bygone era. It's always open and you can walk in and take some pictures. You can't miss it if you're in Cooperstown.
