Many people recognize Cooperstown as the Home of Baseball. The Village welcomes thousands of visitors to the Village each year to tour the National Baseball Hall of Fame and enjoy a game at Doubleday Field. You too can play on Doubleday Field.


Each year hundreds of teams choose to visit the Village in uniform and take the field. The field is available to rent from approximately mid-April through Columbus Day weekend in October, depending on weather and field conditions. We offer three games per day, 10 AM, 1:30 PM & 5 PM most of the spring and summer season with two games per day (10 AM & 1:30 PM) from mid-September through Columbus Day weekend. Rental of the field for a baseball or softball game ranges in price between $400 and $550 per game. The application process for the upcoming summer season begins the fall prior and continues throughout the season as space permits. Organizations who are interested in hosting a tournament (6 or more games on two or more consecutive days) may apply beginning in early October. Applications become available for hosting individual games on or around November 15.

If you would like to be placed in the Village's database to receive your application by mail, please email your name and mailing address (see below). You can also find a downloadable application, on or after November 15, at the Village website ( . All applications/game request must be received by mail. The Village will not accept applications by fax, e-mail or phone. Games are scheduled on a first-come-first serve basis, as applications are received in the Village Office. Field availability changes frequently. The Village tries to update the availability list, weekly during the beginning of the scheduling process, and monthly beginning in February or as time permits. 

If you have specific questions regarding the application process or use of the field please direct them to Teri Barown, Village Administrator, at
