You can’t go to a ball park and NOT sing The Star Spangled Banner… at least not in Louisiana[1], as NCAA officials found out at a softball playoff game Sunday.


Since it was the start of the third game of the day, there were no plans to play the national anthem before the start of the NCAA Lafayette regional championship game between Louisiana-Lafayette and Baylor.

The hometown crowd was not having any of that though.

After some failed attempts to get the PA booth to play the anthem for a second time, the fans decided to take it into their own hands. This was the result.

After all, it *is* the all-American sport.
