We're not avid sports fans, but couldn't pass up the chance to see the collegiate Silver Knights play at Holman Stadium once again as we did nearly 2 years ago.
The Nashua Silver Knights are a summer baseball team competing in the Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL). Its 24-player roster consists of New England athletes with local community ties who are currently playing collegiate baseball at Division 1, 2 or 3 levels.
Holman Stadium, which was built in 1937 as a multi-purpose stadium by the City of Nashua, seats 4,375. It's named for Charles Frank Holman, who contributed $55,000 for the project at the time of its construction.
The Silver Knights mission statement is to provide affordable family entertainment for the Greater Nashua community at Holman Stadium through baseball. Ticket prices start at $5.
The Silver Knights beat the Wachusett Dirt Dawgs 12-1, which may have prompted this team happy dance.
A free music concert, held outside the Nashua Public Library, featured Bill McGoldrick on acoustic guitar accompanied by Britt Hill, a talented singer and songwriter and senior at Berklee College of Music. The library hosts these evening outdoor concerts weekly in July and August.
Outdoor sports and summer concerts are a couple of things we enjoy most about summer road trips. How about you?
