The answer is to tear down the baseball field and build an nba/concert arena there.

I thought the Philles were a minor league team. Maybe a high school team. Just kidding. I think a minor league team in Camden would be great. This project is great. I was here about a month ago. Hopefully will do wonders for this area and spur some development back through the Rutgers campuses and take out some vacant lots and parking lots in the nearby blocks.

Already exists. It's called the BB&T Center.

I think a Phil's minor league team (at any level) would be very successful here, but unaphiliated clubs just don't draw much interest when there is a major league team across the river.

^^Nice! So, so far, we have an 18-story office tower, a 5-story office building, and an 8-story hotel all moving forward as a part of this project.

Looks like that leaves maybe two residential buildings left, another lowrise office building, and the second office tower.

Here is a nice video I found of the development:
