I loved this old park.

There is not a lot to see here, but there is no fee, it is right in the middle of town and not far from the Hall of Fame and the trolley stop is right in front of the field. I... read more

There is not a lot to see here, but there is no fee, it is right in the middle of town and not far from the Hall of Fame and the trolley stop is right in front of the field. I thought when you walked up into the seats it felt like you were stepping back in time. You could... More

We visited this baseball stadium that was built in the style of the old days of baseball. There was a game being played by the rules from the late 1800's, no gloves, no called balls or strikes, etc. It was interesting to see and we enjoyed spending about a half hour watching the game.

Went to watch and old fashion style baseball game how it was played back when first invented, they where dressed in old style uniforms and played by the rules of the time, no helmets or gloves and the ball was softer. the announcer who acted as an ump also explained the different rules and how it was played back then.......

We were in town for the dreams park tournament for our 12 year old. We were able to visit the field and watch an inning of a youth game. Field looked nice but the surrounding area was in rough shape. Disappointed in the cleanliness and conditions of the entrance and bathrooms.

We liked it here. No one was there when we visited and it was nice to sit in the empty stadium and just look around. You could almost hear the voices and crowds of days gone by. A nice quiet visit to end our time at Cooperstown.

Easy stop after touring the HOF. Cool for the boys to see the field attributed to where baseball started.

Played several games on this field during a Legends of Baseball experience. The playing field is well maintained, and the original structure -- built via the New Deal in the 1930s -- added a historic vibe that for a fan like me, was magical.

Quaint, historic field. Games are played each afternoon. I'm not quite sure how it works, but it seems the teams pay a fee to get scheduled for a game. No lights so only afternoon games. We stayed and watched awhile. It wasn't "great" baseball, but I enjoyed it as the teams were coed, and ages ranged from young to old.... More

My son and his team had the opportunity to play a travel game here last summer. While the field itself is very well maintained, the facility is poorly run. We were told to get there at a very early time on a Sunday morning (both teams live 90 minutes away) and when we did, there was no one there to... More

We went here as part of our trip to the Baseball HOF. I didn't realize that games were going on until we walked into it. Would have been nice to have a schedule of events outside just so we knew who was playing and where they were fun, but other than that it was great to watch a little ball... More
