Doubleday Field not to be missed especially when Legends of Baseball are playing!

If you are visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame you should also plan a visit to Doubleday Field.
My tip is plan your trip to Cooperstown around a time when there will be games being played by the Legends of Baseball league, a thirty and over mixed league of amateur players who play the game with heart while dressed in uniforms of major league teams!
To visit Doubleday field when there is no activity would be nothing special in my opinion. Watching a game from the wooden seats of Doubleday stadium, and hearing the crack of the wooden bat along with the cheers of team fans makes it come alive. It’s like a sandlot field with red, white & blue banners hanging from the grandstand wall and seeing the neighborhood home rooftops beyond the home-run fence. The Legends of Baseball team members play hard and play to win as evidence by the bags of ice and plastic wrap used to comfort players after a tough fought game. So do yourself a favor and plan your visit during a game. PS: grab a box of pop corn and a drink from a near by souvenir store to make the game even better! Admission to Doubleday field is free and there is some handicap ramps to the grandstand. Cheers to you! D & V of Wooster, Ohio

Great spot for baseball fans to catch a game in a historic space. Plenty of seating to stretch out or let your little ones roam. Surprisingly hidden- if my husband wasn’t looking for it, I would have never known it was there. Definitely a nice place to stop and catch an inning or too.

Nice trip to the past. I was here 10 years ago and you could walk on the field unfortunately that is not the case now. However you can go into the grandstand and walk around the bleachers. It is a cool place to go back in time

It's okay. It's an old little stadium in a residential neighborhood.

Travel teams were playing there.

MLB used to play an annual exhibition game there, but haven't done so for over 10 years...and that's a shame.

Quick visit is okay.

This is a cool ballpark and worth a look when your in town, esp. for baseball fans. Its just down the block from the Hall of Fame. In the summer many games are played here so if you stop by you probably will see the field in use. The Majors play one game here every year as well. The old grandstand is cool looking - like from a different era and then there is much bleacher seating down both lines and in the outfield (to accomodate the MLB Hall of Fame Game). Awesome place!

What a cool field! It has a touch of Fenway, Wrigley, and you can almost see what ball parks used to be at Doubleday Field. I didn't know that they used to play all-star games here. How cool would have it been to go see Mickey Mantle step to the plate. All I have to say is thank you for have this place open to the public to take in history! Bring a camera and let history begin!

This was a super quick stop for us. We took some photos, sat in the seats and looked at a few of the photos they had posted. If you are a League if Their Own fan, some was filmed here, so it might look familiar.

Of course a trip to Cooperstown would not be complete without a visit to Doubleday. Regardless of the contentious birthplace of baseball, this old gem just oozes nostalgia. Take a free stroll up the steps into the stands, sit and imagine a game of yesteryear playing out before you on that green field. There is just something magical about this place.
