Make-A-Wish Foundation Build Custom Fenway Park In Young Lad's Back Garden

In an incredible display of compassion, the Boston Red Sox has teamed up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to make one young lad's dreams come true.

Thomas Hastings, who was born with scoliosis, has always wondered what it'd be like to have a baseball field in his own garden.

Hastings was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy after his first birthday, but it hasn't had any effect on his love of the game and the, most importantly, the Red Sox.

Thanks to the generous work of the team's ground crew and local volunteers, Thomas now has a scaled-down version of Fenway Park right outside his house.

This 'Fantasy Fenway' is about as close to the real thing as you'll get, with the Green Monster and what have you.

The construction team made sure that the field was flat and wheelchair accessible.

"I've never been through anything like this before with Make-A-Wish," Keough told ABC News. "We decided to reach out to the local community and that's when it really started to snowball."

"He was 100 percent in his element," said dad Brad Hastings. "Here's a kid who gets so tired out and so worn down so easily and he was just running on pure adrenaline, so full of energy."

"I can just wake up to it," Thomas said in the video above, produced by Make-A-Wish Connecticut. "I don't have to think, 'Is that supposed to be Fenway Park?' I know it's Fenway Park."
