(NECN: Jack Thurston, Essex, Vt.) - Pat O'Connor of Essex, Vt. spent Wednesday afternoon getting ready for a big party at "Little Fenway."
"This is the next best thing [to the actual Fenway Park," O'Connor said of his backyard creation.
The software engineer has a quarter-scale version of the iconic ballpark in his backyard. Built in 2000-2001, O'Connor uses Little Fenway to host a popular charity Wiffle ball tournament in the summer.
For Wednesday's Game 6 of the World Series, O'Connor's friends and family were planning to gather at Little Fenway, hoping to watch the Red Sox clinch the series. They anticipated projecting the game on O'Connor's version of the Green Monster.
The party may be far from Boston, but O'Connor said he'll be there in spirit.
"I kind of like the peaceful atmosphere of Vermont, and the cool temperatures are kind of nice for me," O'Connor said. "So I think it'll be an enjoyable event being here with a smaller crowd."
O'Connor said aside from his loyalty to the Red Sox, another reason he hopes the World Series ends at six games is because stormy weather is expected for Thursday night. That means he may not be able to host another viewing party, he noted.
