Like many young kids growing up in New England, Thomas Hastings is a huge Red Sox fan. He also suffers from scoliosis and muscular dystrophy.
Due to his condition, Thomas’s parents were put in touch with the Make-a-Wish Foundation. What resulted was nothing short of incredible.
The wish the family settled on was to build an exact 25% scale model replica of legendary Fenway Park, complete with a Green Monster and a Citgo sign, right in the backyard.
With the help of the Windsor, Connecticut community and Make-a-Wish, Thomas’ “Fantasy Fenway” is now complete. He recently took the field for opening day at the new park, and when you see the look on his face, it’s clear it was the right decision.
