Sporting events and the national anthem go together like peanut butter and jelly, and most contests begin with a rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” as athletes and fans pause for a moment to show respect for the country that has fostered our freedom to enjoy these events.

Last year, however, a softball game between Louisiana-Lafayette and Baylor was slated to start without the traditional national anthem being played.

The game was the culmination of the Lafayette regional NCAA Softball Tournament, and the event’s attendees were told that because it was the third game of the day, there would be no national anthem due to time constraints.

The patriotic fans at Lamson Park wouldn’t accept the excuse, however, and attempted to get the event’s announcer to play the song while the teams were warming up, according to The Acadiana Advocate.

After those attempts failed, the hometown “Ragin’ Cajuns” fans decided to take matters into their own hands, and they belted out an awesome, a cappella rendition of our country’s anthem.

The team even stopped warming up on the field out of respect for the crowd’s national anthem performance that belted out across the park and ended in massive applause.

Luke Johnson of The Advocate posted a video of the performance on social media, and it has since gone viral as people across the country feel a sense of pride that their fellow Americans showed such respect for our country.
