BOY DISCOVERED LIVING BENEATH BALLPARK
A five-year-old boy was placed into custody today by authorities after being discovered sleeping in a dark alcove beneath the third base stands of Fenway Park. The youth, who was unable to give his name, actual residence or reason for being there, had been apparently living on ballpark food scraps and sleeping on flattened cardboard for over two weeks. “I thought the place was haunted,” admitted maintenance worker Jose Torres, who heard the boy talking in his sleep last Tuesday night with the Red Sox away on a road trip. Anyone with possible knowledge or information about this boy is being asked to contact Suffolk County Social Services.
