Audition times are based on a first come, first served basis.

All performances must be a cappella or instrumental.  Only traditional renditions of the national anthem will be considered for selection. Performers chosen by the T-Bones to perform at CommunityAmerica Ballpark will be notified of their selection no later than two weeks after the auditions.

Performances of the Canadian National Anthem, "Oh, Canada" will also be considered for any games when the T-Bones host the Winnipeg Goldeyes. The T-Bones will also consider performances of “God Bless America.”
