Both Tommy McCarthy and Hugh Duffy played together on the same Boston team and became lifelong friends and, for a time, partners in a popular Boston bowling alley/saloon. Tommy and Hugh are both buried here at the same cemetery. Tommy McCarthy can be found in Section 9, Range 26, Grave 74.
Duffy capped off his career as a Red Sox coach in the 1930s, tutoring a player he described as “the best hitter I ever saw.” That hitter was Ted Williams.
