Black Heritage Trail NH
On Tuesday, May 30, the Silver Knights will be celebrating the rich history of Holman Stadium with the Black Heritage Trail of NH. Last year, the National Baseball Hall of Fame recognized Holman Stadium as the home of the first ever racially integrated professional baseball game with Roy Campanella and Don Newcombe playing for the Nashua Dodgers. This year, Holman Stadium has been officially added to the Black Heritage Trail of NH.
The game on May 30th against the Westfield Starfires will feature a pre-game ceremony acknowledging Holman Stadium’s historic roots as well as an unveiling of a plaque in the concourse courtesy of the Black Heritage Trail NH and the City of Nashua.
Additionally, Tale Spinner Brewery will be sampling their CAMPY 39 Pilsner, named after former Nashua Dodger Roy Campanella. The first 250 fans will also receive a Nashua Dodgers t-shirt with either the #36 or #39.
Come join us in celebrating Holman Stadium's 85-year history and commemorate Don Newcombe and Roy Campanella's historic significance.
