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.
On Wednesday, I made what is likely to be my only trip of the season to Campbell’s Field in Camden, NJ, home of the Atlantic League’s Camden Riversharks. While the Riversharks are completely inept (31-54 this season), the ballpark is beautiful (or it could be, with a bit more TLC.)
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.
