Orleans at Tropicana Field
On Friday, April 17th of 2009, Orleans had the great privilege and honor of performing our National Anthem at Tropicana Field, Tampa Bay, FL. The Rays took on the Chicago White Sox in what was to become one of the most thrilling ball games any of us had ever seen. Punctuated by a grand slam home run that took the Rays from behind to one run ahead, the ultimate outcome was not to be decided until the final out … with the home team victorious. Now THAT’s a ball game!
