Historic Holman Stadium

 

Historic Holman Stadium (located off of Amherst Street in Nashua) serves as the home field for the Rivier Baseball team. The ballpark was originally constructed in 1937 but has since received over a $1 million in upgrades, the latest renovation came in 2002 when luxury boxes and brand new seats were added to the seating bowl. It was the home to several affiliated minor league teams along with some independent league teams over the years. Currently it is the home of the Nashua Silver Knights, a founding member of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League.

From 1946-1949, Holman Stadium hosted the Nashua Dodgers, a minor league affiliate of the Brooklyn Dodgers that made American history. Managed by future Hall of Fame manager Walter 'Smokey' Alston, the Nashua Dodgers became the first racially integrated ballclub of the twentieth century, led by fellow Hall of Famer Roy Campanella and future Cy-Young Award winner Don Newcombe. When Alston was ejected from a game in 1946, Campanella assumed the manager position, marking the first time in American history that an African-American managed a team with white athletes. Nashua came from behind to win the game.

Historic Holman Stadium has a capacity of around 4,375. The dimensions are 307 (LF), 401 (CF) and 315 (RF).
