Blind Boy with Autism Belts National Anthem at Fenway Park
Christopher Duffley rocked Fenway Park Monday night, receiving a thunderous ovation on his way to the microphone, and an even louder one as he walked away.
The 14-year-old from Manchester, New Hampshire, sported a dashing stars-and-stripes bow tie as he belted out the “Star Spangled Banner” before the Red Sox took on Terry Francona’s Cleveland Indians. Duffley—born prematurely and rendered blind by Retinopathy of Prematurity—was saluted by players in both dugouts.
Duffley, who also has autism, has dazzled Fenway before, singing the National Anthem in 2013 while representing Autism Speaks.
