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.

A wonderful old time field and plenty of memories. Even if there's no game, take time to sit and enjoy the view.

We went there because my husband plays baseball and is on a league. It has always been his dream to play on this field where so many of his heroes played. What a dream come true!

Watched a few innings of a very entertaining game on the field where the first baseball game is said to have been played. We enjoyed immensely!

I'm not a huge baseball fan, but even I was curious about seeing Doubleday field, mainly because some of A League of Their Own was filmed here! It was conveniently located by the Baseball Hall of Fame, so we stopped by. It was nice that it was free for viewing. The historic seating area was really cool. I'd be interested... More

I went to Doubleday Field on July 26th (the day before the Hall of Fame Inductions) to check out the Hall of Fame awards ceremony. This year, Roger Angell was given the Taylor Spink Award (for journalism), Eric Nadel was presented with the Ford C. Frick Award (for broadcasting) and Joe Garagiola was honored with the Buck O'Neil Lifetime Achievement... More

We just missed seeing an actual game, but that's okay! Our kids loved being there and taking pictures of the old ballpark. It was fun to sit in the stands and take a break from a day of walking around Cooperstown. Of course, we had to get pictures in front of the ballpark too, as our kids LOVE the movie,... More

Couldn't go to Cooperstown and not see the field. Conveniently located a few blocks away from the Baseball Hall of Fame, easy to walk to and no admission. Just walk in and see who's playing. Really takes you back to what the ball fields of old were like.

This field is about two blocks from the Baseball Hall of Fame. It was empty and quiet the day we walked over. On our way, we picked up some ice cream and then sat in the stands and enjoying it. It was cute to watch children with their families taking pictures and many young boys holding their gloves up like... More
