When you are in Cooperstown, you have to go to Abner Doubleday Field. Think about where the great game of baseball began. Over the years some teams have played exhibition games here but that's not the real story.

Just being there where Baseball Truly Began was exciting. Almost solemn. Its simplicity is its true beauty.

Bucket list check off! A must see for any baseball fan. Brings back memories. Able to go inside and sit on wooden bleachers. Would love to come back again and enjoy the town more.

This is a nice outdoor stadium that has a touch of old time feel. Nothing was going on while we were there so all we did was go into the stadium and look around.

My wife wanted to see the field but it was locked on a Saturday afternoon. If you have an interest in this site you'd better check on it's availability ....total waste of time.

We're baseball fans and understand the significance of the stadium in history/lore. It's convenient to the Hall of Fame and worth stopping by. But we only stayed for a few minutes. Not much happening here in Oct.

We fell upon this attraction as we were walking around. As we entered, we realized that a real baseball game was being played. We sat for a while to watch the game and take in all that surrounded us.

This is where baseball began. We were lucky enough that there was a game going on the day we came here as otherwise there is not much to do at this attraction. But it is a great piece of American history.
