PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. – The Charlotte Stone Crabs will host open national anthem auditions for the 2010 regular season from 8:30-11:00 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 6, from at Charlotte Sports Park.
All individuals and groups who are interested in singing “The Star Spangled Banner” prior to a 2010 home game must audition on this date. No private auditions are available. All singers who performed last season are required to audition again for the upcoming season.
Anthem tryouts are available on a first-come, first-served basis during the designated time period. This will serve as the only audition date prior to the 2010 season. All interested parties will be required to sing a live, acapella version of the national anthem during the tryout in front of a panel of judges from the Stone Crabs front office.
Performers are encouraged to bring a set of ear plugs for their audition as they will be singing into a microphone which will be broadcast over the speakers at the stadium.
The Stone Crabs begin the defense of the FSL South Division title on April 8 against the Palm Beach Cardinals at Charlotte Sports Park. Season Seat packages are currently on sale and start at just $60 for the 10-Game Mini Plan. Call 941-206-HITS (4487) or visit StoneCrabsBaseball.com for more information.
