I heard at one time this field was right next to the Baseball Hall of Fame, but it has moved 2 blocks away. Still it was a place that I really wanted to see and despite the fact that there were no games being played,...More

Check out the games with a spectacular view from any of the bleacher seats! There is a little bit of shade in the top couple of rows just past first base. Food outside stadium was reasonably priced. Parking lot behind first base is worth it...More

We spent the weekend in Cooperstown and twice stopped her to watch a couple of innings of play. Have no idea who was playing or who ended up winning. Doesn't matter. Just a great place to stop in the middle of the day to watch...More

Maybe you get a chance to catch a game at this historic ballpark or better off play there. Real cool, original frame and brick work. Good photo opportunity. If not here for a game, take the 10-15 minutes to check it out.

Good to see the field and how it used to be. Many bleachers now added and multi fields for all the teams to play. Kids also like the batting and pitching machines that are in the area.

basically, you go in, look at the field & leave. Very cool to see the spot where baseball was developed, but that's about it

It is what it is, a baseball field. Old school brick and wooden structure. Not much to it since its a ball field. Might be able to catch a game during fair weather months as the field is in use by local school and traveling...More
