Baseball & Music

Actually these two have nothing in common, except that both were outdoor events we attended in Nashua, NH, this week on different evenings.

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?

Went on a good one yesterday to visit my kids. I like to go to a game once in a while, I played through college.

Great photos! David and I never go to the stadium for any event, because the seats are so uncomfortable.

I enjoyed the trip to the ballpark! We now have a FCBL team in our neck of the woods. The Worcester Bravehearts. It's their first year and we haven't had a chance to see them yet, but we will eventually. I love baseball on this level...well, I love all baseball. But these games are often very entertaining and they certainly don't break the bank. You can afford that second hot dog. BTW, the Bravehearts are in first place in the West but it's a tight division.

Baseball and music. Two of my very favorite things in the world. Music is the language that can unite people even if they do not speak the same language. Besides it makes me feel good. And baseball is my sports passion. I follow my major league team religiously. I love the happy dance after winning. Some people object to winner celebrations saying that they are "rubbing the other team's noses" in it. I think a happy celebration is fun.

Quite a contrast between the two events. Your baseball shots are very dynamic!
