Very cool place to watch a game

Watching a game from this field makes you feel like you're going back in time. Simple bleacher seating, but great views, free admission, and a fun atmosphere.

This is really not a major sight seeing item. Really equivalent to a 1A or 2AA minor league park. The Hall of Fame game is held here, but otherwise, this is just a small field. Actually could use to spruce up the areas surrounding the field. Not the high point of Cooperstown.

We enjoyed watching the young teams playing on Doubleday Field. There is no admission, and the teams come from several states.

After visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame, we walked around Cooperstown to all the little shops and restaurants. Right in the middle of town sits Doubleday Field. As baseball fans, my family and I try to watch a game in every town we visit on vacation. Doubleday Field is a well groomed field for all ages of players. We sat... More

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!
