Thomas Hastings, a 10-year-old boy with muscular dystrophy, wished for his own baseball field. Thanks to the help of Make-A-Wish, the Red Sox, and several hundred dedicated volunteers, Thomas received his own Fenway Park.
It took 34 days to transform Thomas’s hilly backyard into a mini-Fenway Park, complete with all the bells and whistles including a wheelchair-accessible Green Monster.
"We do a lot of things for the community and for folks out there, but nothing like Thomas’s wish I’ve ever seen since I’ve been a part of this," said Pam Keough, the president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Connecticut.
Thomas said he looks forward to having his friends over to play ball.
