Here’s another one of the deleted scenes from the Playing For Peanuts series which follows the 2007 season with Wally Backman and the South Georgia Peanuts. In this clip the Peanuts are on the road for a game against the Macon Music at Luther Williams Field. The young lady’s attempts at singing the National Anthem are complicated by a faulty microphone. But as Backman tells everyone at the midway point, “She’s actually pretty good”.
This is really cool. A young nine year old with high functioning autism nails the Star Spangled Banner before a West Virginia Power game. The young man’s mother and the crowd at Appalachian Power Park home of Pittsburgh Pirates Low-A affiliate all show their appreciation at the end of his rendition.
