Last year, the Nashua Silver Knights invited me up to historic Holman Stadium in Nashua, NH to be the guest of honor on $1,000 Hot Dog Night as part of the National Hot Dog Month Tour.
This year, they are holding $1,000 Hot Dog Night on Tuesday, June 26. It may be a bit early for the National Hot Dog Month 2012 Tour, but the Hotdogman will be on hand nonetheless! Assuming the weather holds, The Silver Knights will take on The Wachusett Dirt Dogs at 7:05 PM.
Like last year, I will be tossing out the first pitch and eating the ceremonial first hot dog of $1,000 Hot Dog night.
The way the promotion works is, when you buy a hot dog, there could be money stuffed in the wrapper in the form of one, five, ten, twenty, or even a hundred dollar bill! If you're lucky, you'll win enough to pay for your dogs or even the whole evening.
Whether you win or not, taking the family to Holman Stadium is an inexpensive way to view some quality amateur baseball. The Silver Knights are part of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League- a summer, wood bat league featuring elite college baseball players. Like its more famous cousin, The Cape Cod Baseball League, the FCBL provides fans with good baseball at a cheap price in a family friendly, minor league atmosphere.
If you don't have anything to do that night, head on over to Nashua and catch the game. First pitch is at 7:05 PM. See you there!
