COOPERSTOWN — The Ballston Spa varsity baseball team beat the Mohonasen Warriors 8 to 3 at the historic Doubleday Field in Cooperstown, New York on Saturday morning. The team also visited the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum while in town.

Doubleday Field is named after Civil War Major General Abner Doubleday, who was reportedly born in a small house that still stands in downtown Ballston Spa. (The home is now the site of the Real McCoy brewery.) Although Doubleday was once thought to have invented baseball, there’s no substantial evidence that he had anything to do with the creation or popularization of the game.
