Home Run!

My son and I stopped by to see the field and ended up watching a game played by young boys we didn't even know. I felt like I had been transported back in time. Very cool place!

This is a neat part of baseball history. There was actually a game in progress the day we visited. The two 10 year old boys chased a couple of foul balls. If not for the by chance game this would be just a brief visit. This field is just a short walk from the baseball hall of fame. Worth the... More

This historical field is located a couple of blocks from the HOF, just off the Main Street. They usually have baseball games all day. It is an old stadium, free admission, public bathrooms. It is adjacent to the public parking lot off Main Street. Next door are batting cages, a radar pitch gun, and a concession type food stand.

They claim that this is the home of the first game..Hoboken nj says otherwise..Worth seeing and check out the wide open dug outs with no protection..

you can just sit here and watch ballplayers of all ages playing the game the way it should be played, for fun... plaques aside, this is the hall of fame's out-of-the-park attraction

This place is full of history and it is really cool to be here. They were preparing for a game when we were there so we couldn't access the field (though I doubt they normally let people, I don't know for sure). It was free to get into and right there on Main St. in Cooperstown. There is no reason... More

If you are lucky you'll find a game at the field. Located right in town, with parking (paid) the field is rented by teams for games and tournaments. You might check the Cooperstown Village web site to see if there are any games coming up. There a mens and womens rooms at the facility.

Take the time to walk over while in Coop. We did and a game was being played on the field. Sit for free, take in the air of the place and check an icon off your list. Excellent.
