A tra­di­tional sign that base­ball sea­son is just around the corner in the Mi­ami Val­ley is Na­tional An­them Try­outs, pre­sented by the Day­ton Daily News. Try­outs for na­tional an­them per­form­ers for the 2019 sea­son will take place on Satur­day, Feb. 23, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Day­ton Mall.

Fi­nal­ists will per­form the na­tional an­them at Dragons games through­out the sea­son, with the grand prize win­ner per­form­ing on Open­ing Day 2019 be­fore the Dragons host the Bowl­ing Green Hot Rods at Fifth Third Field on Thurs­day, April 4 at 7 p.m.

Pre-reg­is­tra­tion is now un­der­way at www.milb.com/day­ton/ events/na­tion­alan­themtry­outs.

The first 240 en­trants who pre-reg­is­ter for this event will re­ceive a sched­uled try­out time. In the event that all the al­lot­ted spots are filled, you could still have a chance to per­form at the try­outs on a standby ba­sis.

To reg­is­ter as a standby per­former, you must come to the Feb. 23 try­outs at the Day­ton Mall. You will re­ceive a standby num­ber that will be called when a spot be­comes avail­able. Standby per­form­ers are not guar­an­teed a chance to try­out so in­ter­ested per­form­ers are strongly en­cour­aged to sign up at www.milb.com/day­ton/events/na­tion­alan­themtry­outs.

A panel of lo­cal cit­i­zens in­clud­ing me­dia per­son­al­i­ties, city of­fi­cials, and com­mu­nity lead­ers will judge the event. The panel will make its se­lec­tions based on voice qual­ity, cre­ative style, stage pres­ence, and ap­pear­ance.
