“A beautiful fall day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

This past Friday, I was lucky to be sitting at the ballfield watching the Yankees and the Pirates duke it out in the first of a double-header. The game went into extra innings, and unfortunately the Yankee's lost - but hey...any day spent at the ballpark is better than spending it in the office. And when you can sit right behind the dugout and hear the chatter of the players...it's a beautiful thing.

“Great place to watch a ballgame.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Was a fun place to watch an old-timers ball game - the fact that Babe Ruth played there gave us the chills.

“History abounds in this place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

This was such a nice park. Filled with history. Games being played continually through out the day. What a thrill it was to sit in the stands and think about all that had happened. A dream visit for any baseball lover, young or old!

“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.

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.
