Douglass "Dug" Smith from Millers Falls, MA was a baseball pitcher of extraordinary talent. He pitched successfully for Turners Falls High School and was later signed to the Boston Red Sox. A wonderful seven-page article about him appears in the book "Opening Fenway Park with Style: The World champion 1912 Red Sox." by Bill Nowlin. During July of 2017 Artist Marco Corriea rendered a neat mural of "Dug" Smith on the stone abutment of the B&M RR bridge located on Franklin Street in Millers Falls, MA. Corriea captured the spirit of a local man who made it from the high school baseball ranks to the Boston "big league." A fitting tribute to Smith to be sure.
