Make-A-Wish Makes a Mini Fenway
There's a 10-year-old boy near Hartford, Connecticut, Thomas Hastings who has muscular dystrophy. He loves baseball
He tried to play little league, but it proved to be too exhausting, so he asked the Make-A-Wish Foundation if they could build a baseball field in his BACKYARD.
An exact replica of Fenway Park! And it's just big enough to play whiffle ball with his friends. Same dimensions as the real Fenway Park, with foul poles, a scoreboard, stadium lighting, a press box, a bullpen in right field and a mini Green Monster in left.
The University of Hartford baseball team donated bleachers for the outfield. And the Red Sox head groundskeeper even got a farm in New Jersey to donate the exact same sod they use at the real Fenway.
