The Seventh Inning Stretch

May 31, 2012

The Springfield High School 7 & Senators sang 'Take Me Out to the Ballgame' at Busch Stadium on May 15, 2012 for a Cubs / Cardinals game. Follow their trip from Springfield (on a surprise party bus), their adventures at the stadium and the drama that unfolded just before taking the field. Video by Dave Heinzel.

Well done.

This is such a great group of students and performers. They get a little intense with their non-stop singing and practicing but it has improved their vocal quality immensely and they are truly enjoying themselves. I can't wait to see the 100 Song Challenge video!

I recognized a few great faces. Loved hearing you sing both versions. Loved that you had to WALK some distance - next time faster for cardio. :)
Thanks to all for representing 186 with so much talent.
Go CUBS!!!
