Oneonta Outlaws (Damaschke Field ) and Cooperstown Hawkeyes (Doubleday Field)  both of the Perfect Game Collegiate Basebeall leage have been tabbed as two of the top classic ballparks in the country. The County Times out of Delaware County, Pa., listed Damaschke Field as the 5th most “classic minor league" ballpark in the country and Dobleday field as the first. 

Built in 1939, Damaschke Field was a longtime staple of the New York-Penn League. Surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, it seats about 4,500. Part of the criteria for the top ten list was atmosphere and friendly fan environment. The ballpark must still exist as a ballpark and it must be the home field of a current professional team or have been used in the past for professional baseball. Fenway Park and Wrigley Field were automatically eliminated, as their status as icons have been long established. Therefore, here is a list of ballparks which should be on every baseball fan’s list to visit, to see a game there if possible, but to simply enjoy the moment, the memories, and the stories. Included in the top (5) are Damaschke Field, First Energy Stadium, Reading, Pa., Centennial Field, Burlington, Vt., Rickwood Field, Birmingham, Ala., and Doubleday Field.

Outlaws Co Owner and Managing Partner Keith Rogers said, “It is a great honor for the Oneonta community and the fans to have historic Damaschke Field recognized as one of the classic ballparks in the country. Damaschke Field is a special place and we are very proud to call it home. We look forward to creating many more memories in this beautiful ballpark for many years to come."
