Nearly a decade after the Campbell Soup name disappeared from the Camden waterfront, it will return this spring atop the city's new minor-league baseball stadium. Yesterday at its headquarters here, the international food giant announced that the home of the Camden Riversharks will be called Campbell's Field. F. Martin Thrasher, the company's president for North America, said the naming agreement underscored Campbell's commitment to the city where it was founded 132 years ago. The $20.5 million, 6,425-seat stadium is being built on land where Campbell's made soups until it shifted manufacturing elsewhere and tore down its plants in 1991.

IT IS A MISTY Sunday morning at Campbell's Field, where the last hopes of professional baseball linger like the morning fog. Down the Delaware River, one bridge and two quick train stops away, Pedro Feliz was king. Just three seasons ago, his bat won the Phillies a World Series. It was Feliz who, in Game 5 of the 2008 World Series, delivered the game-winning, groundball single up the middle in the seventh inning off Chad Bradford. The hit scored Eric Bruntlett from third base and gave the Phillies a 4-3 lead, which, famously, the bullpen preserved.

Sitting in their spacious sports bar this week, watching a robust lunch crowd come and go, Sam Sarin and Mike Romano could breathe a little easier. Last month, when they opened the Victor's Pub on the Camden waterfront, they faced an uncertain future. "Nervous ain't the word," Romano said. "It wasn't the thought of making money. It was the thought of losing money. " Sarin added: "We didn't want to be standing out there throwing dollars up in the air. " On March 9, the two, childhood friends and business partners, opened their restaurant in the Victor Lofts, a building with 341 luxury apartments that has been open for four years.

Saturday could see the Delaware riverfront packed as a non-alcoholic energy drink hosts a free event whose competitors appear to have quaffed much stronger stuff. It's Red Bull's Flugtag, in which 32 teams with human-powered flying machines will launch off a 30-foot logo-plastered platform at the Camden waterfront out over - and into - the Delaware River. The Flugtag, which means "flying day" in German, runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., potentially luring thousands of spectators, judging from photographs of crowds on riverbanks and in boats in other cities.

There will be bottomless popcorn, fireworks, and, as always, that stunning view of the Philadelphia skyline. The Riversharks have a lot to celebrate Friday at Campbell's Field, when they hold their 10th-season home opener, with former Phillies outfielder Von Hayes as team manager. The minor-league club has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for local charities and provided up to 100 jobs a season. The park is a boon to families, beautiful and inexpensive to attend. "To me, it looks as good today as it did 10 years ago," said Tom Corcoran, who was president of the Cooper's Ferry Development Association, a partner in the project, when Campbell's Field was built.
