BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Men and women hoping to land a spot singing at the beginning of Buffalo Bisons games this season auditioned on Saturday.
More than one hundred fans belted out their best renditions of the Canadian and American national anthems. The Bisons are now affiliated with the Toronto Blue Jays. And at the team's home opener on Thursday, April 4 at 2 p.m. ballpark attendees will hear the Canadian anthem sung alongside America's for the first time at the stadium.
Bisons Director of Public Relation Bred Bisbing said, "It's a difficult task. Not everyone can do it. You have a delay in the sound system and just singing in front of complete strangers, it's all difficult."
The Bisons need singers for all 72 home games this season and they're hoping to add some new voices to the mix. Auditioners hope to display their talent in front of thousands of baseball fans.
