“Getting real close to the players”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Sitting in the stands brought back memories of high school baseball games in the 50's. In grade school we played on the street and just watched for cars. Usually someone in the neighborhood had a baseball and another guy brought a bat so there could be a game. I am left handed and usually borrowed a glove and wore it on the wrong hand. How come the "big kids" got to bat more than everyone else?

Beautiful park! It's where baseball began. You can feel the history! Watched part of a game while we were there. Don't miss this place when you are in Cooperstown.

“There's always a game going on”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

At Doubleday field, you can while away an afternoon watching kids of all levels play ball at a classic baseball setting. Good baseball park food nearby...and a beer at the batting cages next door if you are so inclined.

“Old time field”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

This is a great place - frozen in time from the glorious past of baseball. You can imagine the scenes from "A League of Their Own" just looking out from the stands. A must for fans young and old

“Quick Stop at Doubleday Field”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Walking into this stadium brings you back a few eras into an old-time ballpark. There was nothing going on at the time - looks like a game may have just ended though. Still worth the few minutes to walk around.

On a side note, the Traveling Vietnam Wall was on display in the Parking Lot for the weekend and was great to see but definitely a daunting and sad sight with the # of names on it.
