To walk where it all began. Visiting Doubleday field helps you to relive the beginning of baseball. Just to sit and take it all in, definitely worth a visit!

Grandstand is amazing. You can only imagine what it was like to catch a game way back when. Although the field was blanketed in snow it was great to just sit in the grandstand and take it all in. I would love to see a game at this baseball shrine.

The Abner Doubleday Field complex has an interesting early history and the stadium you see today saw it's 1st game in May of 1939. Just sitting in the covered backstop of the empty stadium you can envision all the players and fans from the different era's that graced this field. This place reminds you that baseball is a relatively simple game in the purest of terms and it's a shame how money and other documented things have stained the game a little.It is funny to think of the buildings that were sold to make extra room for the property, yet the houses right past the left field 296' marker that must get hit quite often. The property's behind the 360' right center wall as well as the 312' right field pole must also be under constant bombbardment. The last time we were in town in 1999, our family really enjoyed watching a game here. Baseball is truely "America's Pastime".

In the center of town; a must see. An historic site (if you believe that part of the legend). Looks like field has recently been renovated.
