The view from behind home plate at Doubleday Field.


The view from down the first base line. The village of Cooperstown stands right behind the fence.


The view from down the third base line. The field plays host to scores of amateur games every year.


The outfield wall. The outfield bleachers were added to increase the field's capacity when it was hosting the MLB Hall of Fame game each year between two major league teams.


The outfield wall curves out briefly at the flagpole, creating a small alcove in center field.


The scoreboard in the right field corner.


The ground behind the plate slopes downward towards the backstop.


The grandstand and bleachers at Doubleday Field.


A plaque on the first base bleachers, commemorating the gift from former Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey.


The main grandstand. The original 1924 wooden grandstand was replaced by the current brick one in 1939.


A covered "luxury box" area on top of the left field bleachers.
