For the first time, tours of Doubleday Field will be available to the public. Each week, a 45-minute tour of the field, led by local historians (Ted Spencer, former Curator at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, Tom Heitz, former Librarian at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, and Pete Henrici, SABR member /researcher, and owner of Baseball Nostalgia), will be available to groups, with a maximum of 20. The tours, tentatively slated for either Wednesdays and/or Thursdays, from 8:30 AM to 9:15 AM, will begin at the Grandstand entrance to Doubleday Field and, after hearing a talk about the field’s history, the tour group will be led to the area behind home plate for pictures. Admission is $20 per person. Each tour member will receive an exclusive Friends of Doubleday logo pin, created by the foremost sports graphic designer in the country, Todd Radom. Advance booking and payment is required. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place for this special event.
We strongly advise that you check business websites or call ahead for the most up-to-date information on possible limited hours and whether reservations are necessary or not.

Known as baseball’s birthplace, but home to so much more, Cooperstown is a place where legends roam hallowed halls, swing away on diamonds, and take to the stage under a canopy of stars. The historic village boasts a vibrant arts scene, excellent local food and beverage options, luxury accommodations, and, of course, more baseball than you can shake a bat at.
