  • Awesome classic ballpark atmosphere. Such a fun family outing to see the Nashua Silver Nights. Fun interactions for the kids (games on the field between innings, theme days, and players that really treat the kids like heros should). Some of the best fireworks displays I've seen at any local event every Friday home game (we wen't to a Silver Nights game for fireworks to celebrate the Forth - beats the crowds for the city fireworks display any day!) Parking is always easy and free. Ticket prices are very reasonable.
  • Silver Knights are a great local organization. I love that they brought baseball back to Nashua and are still going strong. GM Ronnie is all about the fans and making sure that the organization is providing families with a positive, fun experience when they visit Holman.
  • My family and I have been going to Holman Stadium for Silver Knights games this summer. We've had a great time, its clean affordable and fun for the whole family. We'll be back.
  • If you've never seen Holman, see Holman! Tickets to see The Silver Knights are relatively cheap as I recall and just taking a walk from the entrance down through the park and back around again is great, I've never done it entirely but I'm sure it would be nice (mostly a flat walk with much shade and a nice incline (also shaded) to get he heart rate up before completing a full circuit. The gate is usually open during the day and is very neat to check out.
  • Great atmosphere,great people and great food. Nasua silver knights rock the socks off your feet
