Campbell's Field

Campbell's Field is a 6,425-seat baseball-only stadium in Camden, New Jersey that hosted its first regular season baseball game on May 11, 2001. The ballpark is home to the Camden Riversharks and the college baseball team of Rutgers University-Camden.

The park, located at Delaware and Penn Avenues, features a commanding view of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge connecting Camden with Philadelphia, Pennsylvania across the Delaware River. Views of the Philadelphia skyline are available from the right-field grandstand. These views can be seen through the "Campbell's Field Cam", a stationary weather camera used by KYW-TV in Philadelphia.

The naming rights to the park belong to the Camden-based Campbell Soup Company, which paid $3 million over ten years.
