We were watching a couple local teams play here and it just screams old time baseball with the wooden benches for seats and being right on top of the field behind home plate. Just be careful where you park your car because foul balls leave the park behind home plate right into the parking lot. Watched numerous cars get hit... More

The ballpark is closed in the winter, but you can walk right up to the gate and see the entire field and stands. It is a small, quaint and homey place to watch a game from. The feeling of pure baseball untouched by the modern entertainment additions. If you can catch a game going on, definitely worth staying to watch... More

Wow, it's amazing what you can get if you ask. We called in at the field before the boys headed off to the Baseball Hall of Fame and had a walk up the bleachers. When they'd gone off I went and asked if we could go out on the field later. My guys are real fans. Well... Later we did.... More

If you go to the Hall of Fame, you've got to visit the Doubleday. We happen to catch a game and it was a great way to spend the afternoon. The day we went, there weren't that many visitors, so it was really peaceful. I just sat there watching my father, who was watching the game with the excitement of... More

A nostalgic step back in time to old time baseball. The field is a great venue to watch a game or bring the kids for a clinic. A baseball experience not to be missed. Also, be sure to visit the adjacent batting cages. Can you hit a curve ball, knuckleball, or 70 mph fastball, here's your chance to find out?

The stadium takes you back in time. It's the site of the very first baseball game ever played in the 1800's.

We could not actually get into Doubleday Field as its closed for the season, however if I were here in the Summer I'd check it out. Has an old time baseball look and feel. Would be a fun place to watch or play. Worth a stop!

This park has that old time baseball feel, and during the summer the have 3-4 games played a day on the field. Anyone can rent the field to play on.

A step back in time. Quaint field. Part of a League of their Own was filmed here. It was closed when we were there but you can still look inside.

Since visiting in November there are no games or access inside the stadium. Worth the stop. We were able to take some photos through the wrought iron gates. It's pretty cool.
