While the historic factor makes this field it looks more like a run down high school field. My son who plays in college now was like wow this is bad.

We wandered over there to use bathrooms and there was a ball game going on with older generation. Think it was the Legends baseball group. We sat and watched for awhile. Beautiful field!

the only thing that could have improved my visit would be if there had been a game going on. this is a very well kept facility and almost hidden. it is worth the stop.

Wow finally got to see Doubleday field. Honestly was a bit surprised it was hidden in the back of a parking lot but you can feel the history here.

Not just a ballpark -- often when we've walked by for a look on a visit to Cooperstown, gates have been open, allowing us to settle into the bleachers and just enjoy looking out on a beautiful ballfield nestled into an upstate New York village.

This is a great old-fashioned baseball park, and we had great fun watching guys play ball. No vendors, no snack bar, just baseball. But take a cushion, the benches are hard on the tush.

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.

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.
