I love the old ballpark in Cooperstown. I just sit in the bleachers and picture players from the past----it's a "Field of Dreams" without the cornfield.

Took a stroll inside. Nothing was going on at the time but just standing there, looking out over the field, sitting in the bleachers, thinking about all the baseball and players that have played in that field and run those bases. Amazing.

we stopped by the baseball hall of fame, and while walking through the town we saw this place. My husband was very excited to be able to go inside to see it for himself!

A batting cage, the annual professional baseball game and full of baseball nostalgia and history. Great for kids of all ages.

Great piece of baseball history - you get chills as you walk up and view the field. Unfortunately I wasn’t there when a game was being played

Such a great old nostalgic field. You can imagine old time baseball being played here when you step in. Well preserved and very much worth the walk over to visit while you are at the Hall.

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.
