Let the record show the Tigers chose a WHITE SOX fan to sing the national anthem on Opening Day.
“American Idol” alum Haley Reinhart did a superb job before today’s opener, then told me afterward she is a huge baseball fan — and the suburban Chicago native’s loyalty lies with the White Sox, not the Cubs.
Still, she came away impressed with the atmosphere today.
It’s the first time she’s sang the anthem on such a large stage. She once did it for the minor league Kane County Cougars.
She said the two appearances just don’t compare.
Tigers are taking the field. Here we go!
