Don Newcombe & Roy Campanella played here!

I happen to be staying in Nashua, NH for business and after reading a little history on Holman Stadium, I was looking forward to visiting this ballpark.   The  American Defenders of New Hampshire play in this historic park.  Last time I visited N.H, the Nashua Prides played there.   

Back in the old days, one of the Dodgers minor league teams played at this ballpark in Nashua, NH.   

What a thrill to be at this historic stadium and see the plaque dedicated to the achievements of Don Newcombe & Roy Campanella!   Thank you Nashua, NH for permitting these two baseball players to play here. 

A very happy 83rd Birthday Newk who was born on June 14, 1926.  It is such a pleasure and honor to see you at Dodger Stadium!
