A very nice view and feel to this stadium. Kind of the cherry on top of the Hall of Fame sundae! Easy add-on.

This is a well preserved old baseball stadium from the early days of baseball. Wooden bleachers, small dugouts, and none of the glitz and glitter of modern day stadiums. Baseball the way it should be. Even though there were no games being played, your imagination could run wild here.

This is within walking distance of the Hall of Fame and is a very quick stop. You can go up and sit on the wooden bleachers and imagine the ball games that have been played there.

Beautiful little ball park. An historic site where baseball was invented (supposedly). Saw a couple of adult local baseball teams play on the field. Free to watch. A must if you visit the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame. Plenty of free parking.

If you get a chance, I recommend seeing a game at this field. It is a smaller, more intimate field so you feel a part of the game from your seat. Highly recommend!

When visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame, we noticed that there were games going on at the historic field. We spent two days watching old players of my vintage (60-75) playing the game of our youth. Now these were not professional players, but folks who obviously enjoy the game, and what better place to play than on such an historic... More

A game was actually being played when we visited the ballpark which was pretty cool. It's a great historical depiction of an original ballpark. A Must-See for baseball fans.

Nothing going on during the week after Labor Day. We have been here every year for over 25yrs but this was only good to see the fields where children play during summer in their baseball leagues

We walked over to Doubleday Field and sat in the bleachers. It would be great to take in a game, however, the timing was not right to do so. Lovely bit of baseball history.
