Star Outfielder for the Red Sox in the 1910's. Part of a Red Sox outfield that included Hall of Famers Harry Hooper and Tris Speaker. In 2000, John Clayton, a local reporter for the Manchester (NH), Union-leader, discovered that Duffy's grave was unmarked and wrote two articles about it. How heartening it is that this man, who by all accounts was a famous baseball player in his time, was buried without a marker, until a newspaper reporter released the story, and now there is a fund large enough to provide not only a gravestone, but flowers in perpetuity.
