College summer baseball league ties deal to Bruins

A baseball team in a top New England amateur league is rooting

for the Boston Bruins to finally score a power-play goal in the

playoffs.

It’s costing the Nashua Silver Knights money until the Bruins

do.

The Silver Knights play in the Futures Collegiate Baseball

League, made up of prime college players. The team is giving away a

free Powerade with every ticket purchased until the Bruins score a

power play goal. As of Tuesday, the Bruins are 0 for 28 with a man

advantage.

Silver Knights president Tim Bawmann says it’s not that big of a

risk.

”We believe we will not be giving away Powerade through

mid-June,” he said.

If Boston never scores on the power play, the promotion will end

when the Bruins’ season does.
