There was snow on the field and I did get to run/walk the bases, but it was awesome to see. As a... read 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

Just being there where Baseball Truly Began was exciting. Almost solemn. Its simplicity is its true beauty.

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.
