The Riversharks were not one of the independent league’s better draws – they averaged 3,186 per game in 2015, seventh among eight teams. Actual attendance at the one game I made it to this summer was maybe a third of that.
Saturday, I saw Guardians of the Galaxy with a friend and then we traveled on to Camden to watch the Somerset Patriots play the Camden Riversharks. If you didn’t catch the film this weekend, you’re missing out on one of the best movies of the summer.
I also recommend going to a baseball game in Camden if you have the opportunity. While the city does not have the best reputation, Campbell’s Field is in a safe area near tourist attractions like Adventure Aquarium (formerly the New Jersey State Aquarium) and the Battleship New Jersey Museum as well as the Rutgers-Camden campus.
I made my first-ever visit to Campbell’s Field in Camden last night to watch the Atlantic League playoff game between the Long Island Ducks and the Camden Riversharks with one of my friends.
Campbell’s Field is a beautiful park, and they had a nice crowd for a game on a chilly September evening. The Riversharks got a nice round of applause during their pre-game introduction, but the first inning took a lot of the thunder out of the crowd.
