Are you a big baseball fan, do you love to take in live games there is nothing like it. A great way to see a baseball game, is to check out a minor league team. I would like to introduce you all to a great local minor league team that plays right across the river in Camden, the Riversharks, here is a little more information about the Riversharks from the website.
Opening its doors in May of 2001, Campbell’s Field has quickly become one of the premier minor league baseball stadiums in the country. Honored as “Ballpark of the Year” in 2003 by Digitalballparks.com, and in 2004 by Baseball America, the home of the Camden Riversharks is a 6,500 seat stadium situated along the Delaware River in Camden, New Jersey. Famous for its unbeatable view of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and the Philadelphia skyline, Campbell’s Field provides the entire Delaware Valley with family friendly entertainment at an affordable price. The numerous concourse attractions at Campbell’s Field make it the perfect place to take in a baseball game with the family. The rock climbing wall and bouncing inflatables in the United Way Fit and Fun Zone are non-stop fun for children, and Campbell’s Field even has its very own carousel. Host a birthday party at the ballpark, and you children may never want to leave.

For those of you who know me well know that I am a big baseball fan, I guess that comes with growing up near the major league stadiums in Philadelphia. I love to go to baseball games, there is nothing like it, the crack of the bat, the smell of the hot dogs… for me it is so relaxing and just a lot of fun. But visiting the major league parks can be so very expensive and not something we can do as a family much.
The cost is just so high, just to get into the park is $20++ for standing room only seats, and if you want to eat,… well forget about it you can go broke! So when I had the chance to check out a game with the minor league team the Camden Riversharks, I could not wait to share the experience with my family.
The Riversharks, were up against the Long Island Ducks. It was a fun game full of scoring and plenty of cheers. The view from the seats were amazing! What a great view of the bridge, it just worked so well with the layout of the ballpark. The night was a great night for baseball, it was warm but not overly muggy the skies were clear and we were ready for some fun.
We loved watching the game, but we did not stick in our seats the entire time, there is just so much to do at Campbell’s Field so we wanted to check it out. They have a great rock climbing wall my daughter wanted to try it, then got a little nervous and decided not to. But it sure looked like a lot of fun. Now what is a ballpark without some great ballpark food? Well the Riversharks did not disapont, the food was tasty and affordable. Of course we had to pick up some cotton candy for my daughter she, just adores it.
Although the Riversharks did not win the game, we still all had a lot of fun. We will surely be taking the short drive from Philadelphia to Camden again this summer to check out another fun Riversharks game. So if you are looking for an entertaining time out with the family this summer make sure to check out the Camden Riversharks schedule, and check out a great game with the family. I am sure you will have a wonderful time, my family sure did.
The cost is so very affordable, at $13.00 - $5.00 a ticket!
