    Wow what a disappointment. Over rated!! Go to Dreams Park next time. The food was very bad for the boys. The fields while nicely groomed are the worst to watch a game. No place to watch your child play. Your caged in and the Experience sinks!! The place is ran by a bunch of kids, no one of authority to be found. There are kids driving golf carts all over the place with no sense of order. The hills are ridiculous with no transportation up an down unless your fat and old. The bunks are dirty but they are air conditioned and have a TV, but still dirty upon arrival and not cleaned all week. Thief is a real problem, no locks on doors and no lockers in the rooms. People walk right into the rooms unattended. We visited Dreams Park on off day, they get. Everyone is friendly and well organized. Wonderful fields with great open viewing area. And the Green Monster field is an absolute joke.

    We went to All Star Village after not being able to get in at Dreams Park. Anyone who says that All Star Village is a 2nd class experience vs. Dreams Park is mistaken. I have not personally gone to Dreams Park, but I can’t imagine that it could be that much better. All Star Village exceeded the expectations of the parents and the kids. The bunkhouses were new and had air conditioning, which was key. The fields and facilities were top notch, and the competition level was very high. My only minor criticisms are that the food for players and coaches was ok but not great, and the communication about changing games due to rain could use some work. I highly recommend taking your team there. It is well worth the trip!

    Had a good experience there in late July. Was warm but not too hot. Even though the signs say not to bring outside drinks in we did anyway – just bought the same brand water that they sell at ASV. Fields were great. The boys had a great experience. Had a great dinner at Red Caboose, good pizza from Sal’s and pretty good Thai takeout from Simply Thai.ASV is smaller and more intimate (40 vs 104 teams weekly) than Dreams Park which seems like a complete frenzy.

    Fields were nice, but the staff is incredibly rude. Tell you one thing and turn around and do exactly the opposite. We ran into issues with rain and were told our game would play at 7 am. They had to reschedule for 9 am. Received a frantic call from our coach that head of umpires just barged into the barracks and informed them they will play in 20 minutes. Many of our parents missed the last game because of their unorganization. Also, theft was a problem. My son had a complete set of pins stolen right from the barracks. Head of umpires was extremely rude and hard to deal with. Staff was misinformed and were very hesitant to help find answers. Have been to both Dreams Park and now All Star Village. All I can say is …. I now know why there is a waiting list for Dreams Park and not All Star Village! Save your money….. not worth the expense at All Star Village!

    This place is not as bad as the reviews. We stayed on site in the one bedroom suite. It was not the fanciest, but much better than staying off site. Some of the team families were loud at night talking to the wee hours but we were able to entertain the team parents and families throughout the week. The players had a great time also. The bunkhouses were decent with a TV and air conditioning. The fields are nice, but you have to sit in a dugout past the team dugouts. Not the best views. There were no stands. You cannot stand behind homeplate and watch the game. There is only a little hole in the fence that can fit about 2-4 people. They don’t want parents telling kids what to do I guess. It is miles from Cooperstown but if you were with people you enjoy being with that won’t matter. I was not all that impressed with Cooperstown. It was cute, but only about two blocks long and the Hall of Fame was not what I expected. Downtown Oneonta is not very fancy but has a few good restaurants. The kids that worked there were great! Whenever we needed a ride up the hill we would call one guy and he would come pick us up in a golf cart. You do have to walk up and down a steep hill to get to the fields but there were always trams going up and down. I heard the webcams worked the entire time we were there and my parents were able to watch. There is no sound on the webcam though. Overall it was worth it. My son will never forget the trip.
