“Field of Dreams”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We had the opportunity to get into this place twice, the first time it was during induction weekend and the second was when a group of Old Timers squared off, just looking out at the field and imagining who and when some of baseballs greatest walked across it gives you goosebumps.

“The legendary birthplace of baseball...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Doubleday Field is a wonderful place to watch a baseball game. If you are into the tradition of baseball...it's history...then this is the place to be! It's a relaxing place to take in the tradition of baseball.

“A nice place to see”

We didn't see a game, but it was fun to walk around and take pictures. It was quick stop as we were strolling in and out of the stores on Main Street.

“So nice to visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Felt like you were going back in time! We didn't stay to watch a game but it was well-kept. Parking for the day is $10. You can park on streets for 2 hours for free. If you don't mind walking, go up a street or 2.
