Fans in Louisiana Told National Anthem Won’t Be Played, But Sing Anyway

Fans who attended the NCAA Softball Regionals in Louisana on Sunday took it upon themselves to show some patriotism.

Before the third game, fans were told the national anthem would not be played due to time constraints. But that didn’t keep the fans from singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” themselves.

In the video, you can see players stopping during warm-ups and taking off their caps.


According to KTLA, when a stadium full of University of Louisiana-Lafayette softball fans were about to cheer for their beloved Ragin’ Cajuns, who were playing Baylor in the NCAA World Series, they got a sudden disappointment.

Apparently, there would be no singing of the national anthem due to “time constraints,” since the game was the third one of the day.

Folks in the stadium weren’t about to let that happen, though. Luckily one fan in particular, Luke Johnson, recorded the crowd’s patriotic solution and uploaded the video to his Twitter account.

The Ragin’ Cajuns went onto beat Baylor 9-1, advancing them to the NCAA super regionals, but arguably the best moment of the day happened before the game even began. Check out the video above and see for yourself.
