Eight-year-old Thomas Hastings loves the Boston Red Sox. Thomas also suffers from muscular dystrophy and has since he was just a year old. That’s almost as long as he has loved the game of baseball and his team the Boston Red Sox.
“He just loves the Red Sox more than anything else,” his mother, Mary Hastings, said. “Anything to do with baseball, I think, just takes him to an escape – something that he can just forget about everything else that’s going on because he understands the game of baseball.”
