Nashua, New Hampshire has a fascinating but unsteady history with postwar baseball. In 1946, Branch Rickey placed a Class B Brooklyn Dodgers farm club in the city’s Holman Stadium. Rickey chose Nashua after his Danville, Iowa farm team refused to take on two promising African-American players, Don Newcombe and Roy Campanella. The Nashua Dodgers would be the first racially integrated team of the modern era, one summer before Jackie Robinson arrived in Brooklyn. Nashua also featured a 34-year old first baseman named Walter Alston winding down an unremarkable minor league career. As player-manager, Alston led the Nashua Dodgers to the New England Leaguetitle in 1946. He later won four World Series crowns as manager of the Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers and joined Roy Campanella in the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1983. For all that remarkable legacy, the Dodgers lasted only four seasons in Nashua, folding in 1949. Baseball did not return until 1983, when George Como, Jerry Mileur an...
By the early 1990’s, Holman Stadium no longer met the improved standards required by the Professional Baseball Agreement, the set of commandments governing the partnership between Major League Baseball and its farm clubs. Like many small communities with charming but outmoded Works Progress Administration ballparks, Nashua had been shut out of affiliated ball. What arrived next were independent leagues, beginning with the low budget North Atlantic League in 1995. The Nashua Hawks took roost in Holman in 1995. A year later they were evicted by City officials in midseason over unpaid bills. In late 1997, Chris English, a hedge fund manager from suburban Boston arrived in town representing the Atlantic League, a far more respectable and well-financed independent start-up whose investors were involved in major ballpark construction projects in Bridgeport, Long Island, Atlantic City, Newark and Bridgewater, New Jersey. The Nashua Pride would be an anomaly within the Atlantic League in ma...
The Pride lasted one final summer without Butch. Stabile sold the team in late 2008 to Boston Baseball All-Stars LLC, a weird outfit that re-branded the team as a jingo-istic, flag-humping In 2011, stable ownership returned when Lowell Spinners owner Drew Weber formed the Nashua Silver Knights, a collegiate wooden bat league team. In a nod to the Pride’s glory day, the Silver Knights booked a return engagement from the World Famous Monkey Boy, which ended abruptly and bizarrely when Chris Ames was assaulted by a member of the opposing Martha’s Vineyard Sharks. The Silver Knights also held a Nashua Pride reunion night in 2012. The game attracted former Major Leaguers and long-time Pride stars Glenn Murray and John Roper, along with former owner Chris English.
“Nashua’s a funny town. I think the first sign of trouble was at a Chamber of Commerce meeting and [our GM] Billy Johnsonwas talking about how we would be hiring all these fan-friendly, smiling staff to welcome fans and someone asked “Where are you gonna find them? “But while the C.A.V.E. people [Citizens Against Virtually Everything]were loud, my experience with the rest of the people of Nashua was really pretty positive. At the end of the day, the Pride brought a lot of joy to those in the community who valued it – it just wasn’t a big enough market, squeezed between Lowell, Massachusetts and Manchester.” – Chris English, Owner 1998-2004 (2011 FWiL Interview)

It was Glenn Murray, without a doubt the greatest player in Nashua Pride history. He was the Atlantic League’s Most Valuable Player in 1999, led the team to a championship the following season, and became the first Atlantic League player to reach 100 career homeruns in 2003.
