Pitch To Sing For Mets

By Liz Goff

City crooners are invited to gather outside CitiField on March 22, to vie for a chance to sing the National Anthem for the Queens Boys of Summer at the Mets annual Subway Series on August 2.

Audition for the Mets annual Anthem Search will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 noon on March 22 at CitiField, team officials said.

Contestants are welcome to sing any song of their choice, with the exception of the National Anthem, for approximately 60 seconds, officials said. Singers must perform “a cappella,” (without musical accompaniment) and instrumental performances are welcome.

Participants should arrive at the CitiField Hodges VIP Entrance at CitiField. Contestants must check-in by 11:45 a.m. to qualify for the competition. Parking will be available in Lot G.

Contestants will be assigned an “audition number” during check-in, and the first 100 people to arrive will be guaranteed an audition, the spokesperson said.

A parent or guardian must accompany children under age 18 who wish to audition, a team spokesperson said.
