While walking through Cooperstown, Doubleday Field is easy to walk to and visit. There were no games being played while there, so it was fun to just sit in one of the old bleacher seats and imagine the past...

They have batting cages and radar gun throwing. The field is really cool you can walk anywhere in the stands.

You can just walk up and go in the stands to see the field. We were lucky enough to see a local U18 team playing ball there. Very cool to see.

It is a small working baseball field. That is it! Not only that but it purports to be the origin of baseball. I love baseball but it did not originate in Cooperstown.

This literally only takes a few minutes to check out. It is a nice slice of history and worth the stop as you visit all of the tourist shops in downtown cooperstown. There is no charge and it is nostalgic. A must for baseball buffs.
