Stamford in Fairfield County, Connecticut — The American Northeast (New England)
Michael F. Lione Memorial Park
Large, soft-brown eyes, reverently expressing the simple faith of a little boy; determined countenance and rugged body that bespoke the athlete who never quit; tenderness and compassion without softness and indulgence; fiery enthusiasm for victory with equal dedication to honor, that was "Mickey" Lione, to whom this field is dedicated that all who play hereon may learn that only evil is flabby and that manliness is goodness, here and everywhere.
Dedicated September 26, 1954
