The field where baseball was invented. Another obvious stop for baseball fans while in Cooperstown. In the warmer months there's often live games. The field is currently being renovated.

We went late in the day on a cold afternoon. Not sure if I got the entire atmosphere here. It's a field in the middle of town and there is some charm to it. But it is worth a 10 minute visit while you are...More

While the historic factor makes this field it looks more like a run down high school field. My son who plays in college now was like wow this is bad.

We wandered over there to use bathrooms and there was a ball game going on with older generation. Think it was the Legends baseball group. We sat and watched for awhile. Beautiful field!

Wow finally got to see Doubleday field. Honestly was a bit surprised it was hidden in the back of a parking lot but you can feel the history here.

Not just a ballpark -- often when we've walked by for a look on a visit to Cooperstown, gates have been open, allowing us to settle into the bleachers and just enjoy looking out on a beautiful ballfield nestled into an upstate New York village.

It’s free to visit Doubleday Field and sit on the bleachers but you cannot access the field. Only the players and coaches can have access to the playing field, I think.
