You can feel the history.

Brings you back in time. Games two and three times a day, you just walk in and watch a game. The nostalgia can get you here

This field is still in use today and we were lucky enough to see a game during our visit. It is just a short walk from the HOF in the center of town.

Thoroughly enjoyed visiting Abner Doubleday Field. It is a neat old ballpark that can be reserved by teams. It gives you that "major league feel" in what could be a nice minor league stadium.

We loved seeing this beautiful baseball stadium where baseball (as we know it) was born. It's lovely to see, fabulous to recognize, and located only 2 blocks from the Baseball Hall of Fame.

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.
