CorvairJim performs the National Anthem before a Reading Phillies Minor League ballgame
Trophies: 19 Give this video a trophy



I had an opportunity to do something I've wanted to do for a long time on the evening of April 15, 2009. I sang the National Anthem before a professional baseball game! Okay, so it was a AA Minor League game, it was still a thrill. My dad has been doing this for over a decade now as a hobby, and I wanted to see what it was like for myself. This was only my third solo - ever! The Reading (PA) Phillies (my "Home Team") played the Binghamton (NY) Mets, and lost 5-2.

I may never make "American Idol", but at least I had fun!
