The Village of Cooperstown has been awarded a state grant of up to $3 million to support upgrades at Doubleday Field.

Governor Andrew Cuomo says the nearly $6 million project will ensure Doubleday Field's long-term future as a staple of the local economy and the game of baseball.

Cuomo also says the project aligns with the tourism and downtown revitalization strategies identified by the Mohawk Valley Regional Economic Development Council.

"Doubleday Field is a national treasure, and this project will bring the stadium into the 21st century while ensuring it stands strong in Cooperstown for generations to come," Cuomo said. "We're seeing incredible growth in the tourism industry and, with these renovations, the new upgraded Doubleday Field will host more events, attract more visitors, and generate an even greater economic impact for the Mohawk Valley."

Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Weekend is taking place this weekend in Cooperstown.
