The Bowie Baysox will host live auditions at Prince George’s Stadium Saturday, March 12, to sing the national anthem before a 2016 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 Marketing Director Brandan Kaiser serves as a judge for the event. “Anthem auditions are our first event of the year that signals baseball season is right around the corner,” Kaiser said. “We enjoy hearing people’s rendition of the anthem and giving some area fans a chance to sing before a Baysox game.”

The auditions are held rain or shine, reservations for audition times are not accepted and no word sheets are allowed to be used during the audition.
