PRESS RELEASE – The Camden Riversharks announced today that they have been selected for inclusion in Baseball America’s 2010 Great Parks Calendar. This is the second time that the national publication has honored Campbell’s Field as one of the nation’s best ballparks. It had previously done so in 2004 as well.
“We’re thrilled to be named as one of the country’s best ballparks for a second time,” said Riversharks General Manager, Adam Lorber. “We take great pride in maintaining a clean, family friendly, first rate facility, and it’s nice to see our efforts recognized by a publication such as Baseball America, which is so well respected within the industry.”
Baseball America has not been the only publication to bring national acclaim to Campbell’s Field since its construction in 2001. The stadium was named the Ballpark of the Year by DigitalBallparks.com in 2003, and was one of only two stadiums to earn a prestigious ten out of ten rating by the website.
Campbell’s Field is a 6,425 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, the ballpark is not only the home of the Camden Riversharks, but also the Rutgers University Camden Campus Scarlet Raptors (NJ). It will also be the home field of the Saint Joseph’s University Hawks (PA) for the 2010 season.
Stadium amenities at Campbell’s Field include 20 Luxury Suites, 417 Club Level Seats, and an outdoor picnic seating area along the third base line. The ballpark also features a children’s play area which includes a rock climbing wall, bouncing inflatables, a carousel, and a 5,000 foot playscape.
The Camden Riversharks play in the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball. Full and partial season ticket plans are currently available. For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit http://www.riversharks.com/ http://www.riversharks.com or call 1-866-SHARKS-9.
