Softball fans in Louisiana learned “The Star Spangled Banner” would not be performed prior to the game between the Ragin’ Cajuns of the University of Louisiana-Lafayette and the Baylor Bears.
The anthem was not regularly performed due to “time constraints” as it was the third game of the day.
Fans in the crowd took matters into their own hands and sang the anthem together. This was after attempts to convince the public address announcer to play the anthem proved unsuccessful.
