VIDEO: National Anthem Microphone Malfunction With A Wally Backman Cameo

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”.

VIDEO: Skydiver Who Is Supposed To Fly Game Ball To The Mound Instead Crashes Into Outfield Wall

This clip is a couple of years old but one that I had not seen before today and judging by the view count, you haven’t either. It comes as a web extra from the Playing For Peanuts documentary that follows Wally Backman as he manages the independent South Georgia Peanuts. They hire a skydiver to fly down and deliver the baseball to the pitcher, but instead of landing near the mound, the dude crashes into the outfield fence.
