We went to the field twice while we there. Due to horrible weather no games were going on. We still had fun looking at the field with snow on it. Hopefully we will be back in the summer when we can enjoy this beautiful field.

Doubleday Field should be your next stop after visiting the Hall of Fame. As some have said ,it`s downtown not far from the Hall of Fame. When we visited, no teams were on the field. The feelings you get is second to none , when you just sit on the bleachers and take in the views from different areas in... More

Doubleday Field is a public baseball park in the center of Cooperstown. Probably 75 years old or more, it gives me goosebumps when I sit on the benches on a warm summer day. Once it hosted the annual Hall of Fame game from the MLB. Stars and journeymen a like, stepped up to it's plate. Today, if you stop in... More

This is the field where the Annual Hall of Fame game is played. It is an old-time field with good site lines. The stands have metal bleacher seats, which can get a bit uncomfortable after awhile. They also have regular games there during the year.

If you are seeing the Baseball Hall of Fame, then Doubleday Field is a must see. It is a small stadium with a old time feel. There was no game in progress when I was there, so it took no more than 10 minutes to visit. I sat in the stands and took in the ambiance for a few minutes.... More

What a place! Makes you feel like you are in a movie or watching Babe swing the bat. No charge to enter and watch a game. Teams rent the use of the field, so all different levels of the game could be going on at ant given day. For a schedule of who is playing, go to the Village web... More

A fine little ballpark. Catch a game and you'll feel as if it was the 1950s. It is Single A but top quality.

If you go to Cooperstown, you must swing by Doubleday Feld. I've been twice, and each time there were games going on, once the players were even wearing super old uniforms. Fun to sit there and watch for a bit to get in the baseball mood, and daydream about when you used to play, and how fun it would be... More

More so than Fenway or Wrigley, this is about as close as you can get to a baseball experience from 100 years ago. A lovely brick facade, one level of bleachers from left field to right, and only the portion behind the plate has a roof over it. No video screens or loud music to distract you. (That makes me...

This is a great way to keep in touch with what makes baseball so great while you are in town seeing the hall. Local adult leagues and minor leaguers can be found playing their hearts out here, and you better keep an eye on the time, because you might get caught up in a game and get off schedule!
