Camden Riversharks: A Less Expensive Baseball Option
The smell of hot dogs, the sound of the bat making contact, and the sight of that glorious double play. These are the smells, sounds, and sights of summer.Â And in Philadelphia, summer usually means one thing– the Philadelphia Phillies are back in action. Now, you used to be able to get pretty cheap seats at the ball park. But since the Phillies are doing so well, their ticketÂ prices have gone up accordingly. Also, most of the games are sold out already! What is a family of four supposed to do on Friday night? Going to the Phillies game will easily cost over $100, not to mention sodas, waters, and snacks.
Thankfully, there is another option for a baseball fan looking for a good bargain. The Camden Riversharks! This minor league team plays at Campbell’s Field on the Riverfront, right over the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. They provide all the thrills of a baseball game with added family-friendly attractions located right at the ball park. Seriously, there’s a carousel!Â Also the park features a rock climbing wall and bouncing inflatables in the Nesquik Fun Zone. In addition to these wonderful attractions, the field and its surrounding area offers a perfect view of theÂ sunset over the city skyline. Sounds like a perfect recipe for a wonderful family outing.
Tickets start as low as $5 for the family area (Section 218) of the ball park. To sit at the premium field level will run youÂ $15/ticket. Standing room at the PhilliesÂ runs aroundÂ $17; you cannot beat these prices! Also, has your son/daughter dreamed of throwing out the first pitch at an official game? The RiversharksÂ give you the chance to create this memory for $100. What a great birthday present idea for your child! On top of everything, every Friday night game at the ball park ends with fireworks. Imagine watching fireworks with the beautiful Ben Franklin Bridge in the background! It’s something that should be shared with the whole family. And at a great price, too!Â
