Temple Baseball To Play Conference Games at Cambell's Field
PHILADELPHIA – It is a new era for Temple University Baseball, so it is only fitting that the team will be playing in a new stadium.
Entering its first year as a member of the American Athletic Conference, Temple University today announced it will play all but one of its home conference games in beautiful Campbell’s Field, home of the Camden Riversharks.
“We are truly excited to be able to provide a first class venue for our team to perform in this historic season,” said Temple University Director of Athletics Kevin G. Clark. “We are also grateful to Camden Riversharks President and General Manager Adam Lorber and his staff for their help in bringing this partnership to fruition.”
In his third year at the helm of the Temple Baseball program, head coach Ryan Wheeler echoes Clark’s sentiments.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for Temple Baseball, not only for our current players, but our future players.” Wheeler said. “To play in a first-class stadium, against the caliber of competition in the American Athletic Conference will be great for our fans, as well as college baseball in the area.”
Since opening in 2001, Campbell’s Field has become known as one of the premier minor league ballparks in the country. Famous for its fantastic views of the Ben Franklin Bridge and the Philadelphia skyline, the stadium was honored as the “Ballpark of the Year” in 2003 by Digitalballparks.com and in 2004 by Baseball America.
“We look forward to hosting Temple's home conference games,” said Camden Riversharks President and General Manager Adam Lorber. “Campbell’s Field has all the amenities needed for their fans and players, and we will do everything possible to make them feel at home.”
