    Thursday's Game: National Anthem

    I just found out last night that a buddy at work's wife is singing the National Anthem at tonight's game at GABP. Pretty cool.

    They live in Ottawa, Ohio, and their nephew the last three years has been all-state in Legion baseball, so the entire family and relatives are pretty involved. And over the last few years she was asked to sing the NA at a few of the local games. A retired ex-Reds scout who lives in the area, and who is also a close friend to Bob Castellini, heard her sing awhile back and asked her if she would be interested in singing the NA at a Red's game. He made some contacts with the Red's FO and they asked her to submit a demo tape. They contacted her a couple weeks back and asked her if she was available to sing this Thursday.

    So there are about 75 from Ottawa taking the trip down tonight.

    Do they show the NA being sung on FSN? I wasn't sure.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    I don't think they show it but they always have it on the radio.

    BRAVO!!!!!!!!!
    "This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
