of the national anthem
before the Reds-Astros game at Great American Ball
CINCINNATI -- The Lindsey Wilson College
Singers performed the national anthem before Tuesday night's Reds-Astros game at Great American Ball Park.
The performance -- before more than 23,000 fans -- came 10 years,
two days after the Lindsey Wilson Singers last performed the
national anthem before a Reds game.
The last time the Lindsey Wilson Singers performed the national
anthem before a Reds game, it was at Cinergy Field and it was also
the first post-9/11 Reds game. The Reds beat the Cubs that night,
At Tuesday night's performance, the Lindsey Wilson Singers were
joined by seven alumni, several of whom had also performed before
the 2001 game.
Although the Lindsey Wilson Singers performed at a different
venue on Tuesday night, the outcome of the game was the same: the
Reds won. On Tuesday night, the Reds won 6-4 on the strength of seven strong
innings from starter Homer Bailey and two home runs.
