    Saw the Mets play there back in 1992. Beat the White Sox. It was hot as Hades in those bleacher seats!

      Too bad they don't have the HOF game anymore. Any teams play exhibitions there going into the season? Weather would be iffy even in late March, I'm sure.

      Who's gonna be the first to chime in with "That place is a dump!"?

        My High School team got to play there last year, it really was something. Playing somewhere with so much history... It really gives you an appreciation for the game. Dugouts were really uncomfortable though.

          This field is soo far into baseball blasphemy.. What was Doubleday credited with inventing..?

          "...So the winning run is on second base, with two outs, three and two to Mookie Wilson.

            I went there once, I thought it looked great. I seem to remember a stream running under the stands?

            Anybody?

              The first time I went to Cooperstown I sat for an hour and watched two town teams play. I thought I was in heaven.

                Credited? A lot.

                He didn't start baseball, but he did start the Civil War, if that's any help.
