The Nashua Silver Knights are a summer baseball team competing in the Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL). Our 30 player roster consists primarily of New England athletes currently playing collegiate baseball, at the Division 1, 2 or 3 levels, with local community ties. These players will be under the watchful eye of professional baseball scouts with the hope of being selected in Major League Baseball?s amateur draft. The FCBL is comprised of teams located in Nashua (Silver Knights), Martha?s Vineyard (Sharks), MA; Torrington (Titans), CT, the Seacoast (Mavericks), NH, North Shore (Navigators), MA, Brockton (Rox), MA, Pittsfield (Suns), MA, Worcestor (Bravehearts) MA, Bristol (Blues) CT, and the Wachusett (Dirt Dawgs), MA. The FCBL is already planning and negotiating with other locations for expansion in the 2016 season.
The Silver Knights are owned and operated by the Lowell Spinners Professional Baseball Club (Class A Affiliate of the Boston Red Sox). The Spinners are widely recognized as one of the top franchises in professional baseball having won numerous awards in promotional excellence. In fact the National Baseball Hall of Fame inducted the Spinners very own Jack Kerouac bobblehead into The Hall as the first ever giveaway recognized for promotional excellence. Spinners notable alumni include current Boston Red Sox stars Clay Buchholz, Hanley Ramirez and Mookie Betts.
The Silver Knights mission statement is simply put: ?To provide long-term and sustainable affordable family entertainment for the Greater Nashua community at Historic Holman Stadium t
