The Bowie Baysox host live auditions at Prince George’s Stadium Saturday, March 12, to sing the national anthem before a 2011 Baysox home game. Stadium gates open for registration at 9 a.m. and auditions begin at 9:30 a.m. The team has a live performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” before all 71 home games.
Baysox Promotions Manager Chris Rogers serves as a judge for the event. “A lot of talented people try out at the auditions every year,” Rogers said. “I look forward to hearing some of the most talented fans in the region singing our national anthem. I hope we get some groups and instrumentalists to try out this year as well.”
Every participant must register, and auditions are conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. The auditions are held rain or shine and reservations for audition times are not accepted. All auditions must be done in person, no CD’s, cassettes or videos are accepted for review. Last year, more than 60 people auditioned to sing the national anthem.
