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.

Bucket list check off! A must see for any baseball fan. Brings back memories. Able to go inside and sit on wooden bleachers. Would love to come back again and enjoy the town more.

This is a nice outdoor stadium that has a touch of old time feel. Nothing was going on while we were there so all we did was go into the stadium and look around.

My wife wanted to see the field but it was locked on a Saturday afternoon. If you have an interest in this site you'd better check on it's availability ....total waste of time.
