The Abner Doubleday Field is a neat place to go in and take a quick look around. Lots of history there, but unless a game is going on, then not much more to take in.

The Field’s parking lot is a good place to park for a day in downtown Cooperstown. There are actually games being played there on a regular basis. The day we were there, two high school baseball teams from Connecticut played a game starting at 1:00pm....More

Not much to see here unless a game is Taking place. Great for youth to be able to play on field with such history. We were here off season but able to catch a game - not sure what it would be like in summer

It was on my "top 10 places to visit" during my 2017 US Trip. It took us more or less three hours trip from Jersey City, NJ, but being a baseball fan, it's worth it. The ballpark is made of mixed wood and steel, so...More

There was snow on the field and I did get to run/walk the bases, but it was awesome to see. As a man who grew up playing little league, this was a place I always wanted to see. If you are even a casual fan...More

Checked out this classic before going to the hall of fame. I am not sure if they do tours or if there is more to see on the inside. Visited in the winter.

Of course a trip to Cooperstown would not be complete without a visit to Doubleday. Regardless of the contentious birthplace of baseball, this old gem just oozes nostalgia. Take a free stroll up the steps into the stands, sit and imagine a game of yesteryear...More

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.

A classic looking ballpark, its like walking back in time. My only wish is that I was there to actually watch a game.

You walk into the park and feel yourself transformed back to the early days of baseball, before everything was sponsored by some big corporation. Beautiful old grass field, with wooden grandstands, dugouts located closer to home plate that in major league stadiums. Must be an...More
