Dorchester Park myth?
 Is there any truth to the story told by oldtimers that Dorchester Park baseball field was designed to imitate the original Fenway Park? There is a hill in left field, just as at the original Fenway. Fenway's hill was known as Duffy's Cliff. There is a wall in center field at Dorchester Park and a tough sun field in right. A scoreboard mural has been painted on the wall in outfield.
