On the outside, Jace Andrews of Montgomery, Texas, appears no different from any other 12-year old boy. He likes to play sports, including baseball, and hopes to someday work at either Fenway Park or ESPN. The ambitious son of John and Julie Andrews has battled adversity since the beginning of his life, which includes a nine-hour open heart procedure just days after birth.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation granted Jace’s wish to see Fenway Park, with tour guide Dustin Pedroia leading the way. Jace idolizes the Red Sox second baseman, who inspires Jace because of the Pedroia’s ability to make it to the major leagues, despite his size. Both Jace and Dustin know a thing or two about overcoming obstacles in life.
