Yup, just interested in the backstories. Someone mentioned one might’ve been named after a lost ship. 

 

Interested in if they were named after people or how they came into being. 
 

Plenty of other holes, I think **** went they in a boat and marked hundreds of holes/drop offs but love reading stories about days long gone and some of those who fished before my time.

8. There are 9 dolphins there. In the 1930s, the Italian workers from NYC who were working on the Canal's widening named the place that in honor of the batting order of the 1927 Yankees, which was often referred to by that name. Some of those workes settled in Sagamore after the work was complete, and lived in the Blocks, the row apartments across the street from the ballfield.

 

3. Common Irish surname. Could also be a mangling of cribbing, wooden blocks used to stabilize structures like a retaining wall.

5. It was the name of a chain of lumberyards in Eastern Mass, and I think there was one at that location years ago. There were also spots named the  coalyard and the lumberyard, in the west end.

I don't know the stories behind the ones that carry someone's name. 

There's also a spot that has another name now, that years ago bore the name of a certain restaurant, located in the same spot as the Way Ho.

Interesting thread. There's one spot at a river myself and Friends fish at I keep referring to it as Paul's rock and everyone just laughs at me.

We have uncle Leo's Rock in the Douglas state forest. 

He took many deer from it.
