Fans at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky sing the National Anthem in unison prior to a basketball game between the University of Kentucky and the University of Florida
On March 5 at the Inland Center Mall in San Bernardino, we’re going to bring in some of the best talent in the area for a chance to sing the Star Spangled Banner before one of our 70 home games at Arrowhead Credit Union Park.
The iconic song has been played before sporting events (and baseball in particular) for a long time. The Baseball Hall of Fame says that it was played before a game during the Civil War. Any way you look at it, it’s been around a LONG time!
The 66ers won’t be the only team to carry on this tradition. In fact, if there’s a single professional baseball game all year that fails to start the game with the Star Spangled Banner, we’d all be shocked. But the lyrics, the tune, the sense of pride it brings…it’s all rarely changed.
And we’re looking for YOU to be the next person to continue the tradition!
In previous years we’ve had some phenomenal talent sing the National Anthem, and we expect to have great performers this year as well. Check out 66ers.com for all the details!
