going into this was like a step back in history. The old seating made sitting there feel like you were a part of history immaculate-maintained facility. A must see during your visit

As a baseball fan, I like any ballpark or field. Despite the snow in the area, I ventured around the park and got a good look at it.

While waiting to meet friends on a Sunday morning we watched a game being played. It looked to me like it was a "Dream Weekend" game as most of the players were older although there were a few young guys. They had umpires and the scoreboard was working and that throw from 3rd to 1st is a "killer".

We were lucky enough to walk in on a baseball game in progress, by two local teams. Listening to the players in the dugouts, rooting their teams on, was so reminiscent of the old days.

We really wanted to visit the field but, it was locked. We were able to get in to view the sight from the stands.

This is an old school field and we enjoyed watching the legends play baseball. There is not much to it but it is just good old baseball

This is a beautiful gem of a ballpark and is where they take pictures of the Baseball Hall of Fame inductees every year. Baseball wasn't really invented here, but it should have been! Teams (both adult and youth) play games here so there should be a game you can watch free from the well-kept stands.
