THE DREAMS PARK EXPERIENCE ...

While promoting a high caliber of play, our goal is to have young players experience the purity of baseball as it was meant to be.

  • By stepping up to the plate, regardless of outcome, all players leave with a sense of pride, dignity and accomplishment.
THE MISSION OF COOPERSTOWN DREAMS PARK

...is to provide a cultural and life enriching experience for young boys and girls who love the game.

  • By visiting the Village of Cooperstown and playing in the legendary home of baseball.
  • By meeting and playing against their peers from around the country and the world.
  • By reaching within themselves to fulfill their ultimate dream.

"A Place in Time where they are their own heroes"

 

 Just Imagine ...

Being a part of History! Each player and coach will be immortalized by being inducted into the prestigious American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame where they will be enshrined. As a part of the Cooperstown Dreams Park experience, your team members will be awarded the coveted American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame ring - like the champions before them - and granted membership into this distinguished baseball club. All Cooperstown Dreams Park participants share this great honor.


 

 Just Imagine ...

In the town where baseball began ... your place in history with baseball's greats. At no other time in the history of youth baseball has there ever been an invitational tournament quite like Cooperstown Dreams Park, with its unique baseball atmosphere ... where baseball present meets the traditional values of baseball past. Take a step back in time ... with barnstormers of baseball past. Fields cut from the same pastures that have given life to the magical myth of Abner Doubleday. Teams travel far and wide to play on these sacred fields.


 Dreams Really Do Come True

Cooperstown Dreams Park offers today's youth a chance to fulfill childhood dreams. We trust you will agree this is an opportunity of a lifetime. If you love baseball and kids, Cooperstown Dreams Park is the place to be. It is a must for America's Youth.
