Ahead of a milestone 2020 season, the Nashua Silver Knights (summer collegiate; Futures Collegiate Baseball League) have unveiled their 10th anniversary logo. The new look will be integrated into the team’s social media platforms, communications, and merchandise. The anniversary logo is a visual reminder of the Silver Knights’ accomplishments since the team’s inception in 2011.
The Nashua Silver Knights are the final remaining founding franchise in the Futures League and have much to celebrate. Most notably, the Knights have the most championships in the league with four outright titles from 2011, 2012, 2016, and 2017. There is also a litany of individual player success in the team’s history. These accolades include 3 Commissioner’s Award-winners, over 30 All-FCBL team honorees, 22 MLB Draft picks, and numerous All-Star selections. Furthermore, Silver Knights players hold 6 single-season records and 11 FCBL individual career records*.
Over the Silver Knights’ history, the team has used various logos including a helmeted knight head and the team’s fierce red eyes of the knight. The fierce eyes logo has been incorporated into the 10th Anniversary logo set at the base of the outline of the state of New Hampshire. Below the eyes is a star indicating the location of Historic Holman Stadium and the Gate City as the home of the Knights. Consistent with the red, silver and black color scheme of previous logos, the commemorative logo highlights the organization’s pride in being the first Futures League franchise to reach this tenth-season milestone.
“I’m excited to be part of the 10th Anniversary season,” General Manager Cam Cook said. “It’s important to not only celebrate the last 10 years of Silver Knights baseball, but the continued success and future of baseball in Nashua. The best is yet to come.”
The Silver Knights have also become a mainstay at Nashua, NH’s Holman Stadium, which has been home to a variety of teams over its decades of use. The Nashua Dodgers of the New England League played there from 1946-1949, and the ballpark was later used for Class AA Eastern League action from 1983-1986. A variety of independent league clubs occupied Holman Stadium beginning in the mid-1990’s, with the 2009 American Defenders of New Hampshire (Can-Am League) being the most recent professional team to have played at the ballpark. The Silver Knights have played at Holman Stadium since 2011.
