Of the 2,430 Major League Baseball games this season that will open with the singing of the national anthem, one performance this weekend will carry a special emotional tribute and resonate with inspiration and faith.
On Saturday night, when the New York Yankees take the field against the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, the familiar tune will be sung by 14-year-old Reat Griffin Underwood.

Seemed like a great kid..RIP Reat
the dragon walks the world indeed, some crazed satanic nutjob just shooting people.. egad.
"We are going to show our community and the nation that faith wins," says Corporon, who told Fox News the commemoration "is more than just singing the national anthem, but to spread the message that faith wins ... when you have faith, God exists and when heaven is available to you, when you are climbing that mountain and you are in that valley, you have strength."
I am White. I think it is despicable and sub-human what another White man did to this family and the other person’s family.
It is the lack of condemnation by persons of other races when member of their race do despicable things, that bothers me.
There are nut-jobs among us ladies and gentlemen. They come from no single race. When they act out, we, each of us regardless of our race, need to speak out in objection.
I don’t care if the perp is White, Black, Islamic, Christian, or of any other group, we must object to despicable behavior.
This young man didn’t have a superlative voice. He had the voice of many of us who wish we had a great voice. I say this not to put the kid down, but rather to say that he was one of us, the vast majority of people who are not superlative, but rather common decent folks.
When we lose people like this, we lose a part of the heart and soul of us.
I am saddened that any human could be so consumed with hatred, that they could kill another person at random, or out of a select group of people who had done him and his family no wrong.
Whose light shines here, the perp, or the people who were innocent here?
The God of our fathers will sit in judgement. Rest assured.
“Heaven is all around us,” she said. “We just have to listen and feel it. I really believe that. The more we rely on God and knowing there is a God, the stronger we can be.”
Very true. But we also have to keep in mind the devil is around us too.
This poor kid was killed by a KKK member who was caught in the company of a black transvite hooker.
RIP Little Man....and rot in hell the killer.
