Stunning: Spectators Take Matters into Their Own Hands When Announcer Says There Will Be No National Anthem Before High School Softball Championship Game

Who would have ever thought there would come a time in America when event coordinators would be so fearful of offending someone that they would refuse to play or sing the national anthem before a sporting event?

It happened recently in Fresno, California…

Two high school girls softball teams were about to play for the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Central Section softball championship.

Several hundred parents and fans were in attendance.

When the game’s announcer told the crowd there would be no national anthem before the game, scattered boos could be heard throughout the stadium…

Then – almost in unison – the spectators rose to their feet and began to spontaneously sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” a cappella.

Watch this short 49-second fan video of the crowd singing the last few bars of the national anthem:

  1. That was awesome . This bending over to please just a very few , whose vievs do not co concide with the majority is a bad mistake . Too often those vievs are so far off base that it isnt even funny . Next thing you know a cup of coffee is gonna take someone to court because they say its too hot .

  2. Isn’t it amazing how many people are misreading us Americans? They underestimate the patriotic spirit and that’s why the polls were so wrong and Donald Trump won.

  3. It’s really nice to see the crowd join in one accord and sing the National Anthem. It’s a real shame that people will continue to be more and more afraid of retaliation from anyone who threatens them, especially in a ‘sanctuary state’ where criminals will not be held accountable for their actions. Rule of Law is right out the window and lawlessness is running rampant! Pray and ask God to change Sacramento and then Vote your biblical world view.

  4. This actually wasn’t about fear of offending people. More than one game was being played, and this was the 2nd game. Since the anthem had already been sung before the first game, the announcer was informing the spectators that it would not be sung before the second game. I think the crowd must have misunderstood the reasoning behind it, but I think their choice to spontaneously sing it themselves is still a wonderful response.
