Travis Tritt Forced To Perform Anthem From The Stands Due To MLB Rule Against Unvaxxed People On The Field

Fox News reports:

Country music star Travis Tritt sang the national anthem before Game 6 of the National League Championship Series on Saturday amid his very public declaration not to perform at venues that require any kind of coronavirus vaccine or mask mandate.

Wearing a Braves jersey, Tritt received a smattering of applause when he was announced as a “country music legend.” There was a problem with Tritt’s microphone, but a worker quickly handed him a backup mic that allowed him to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” without any further issues.

The Braves’ stadium, Truist Park, has allowed full capacity with no requirements for vaccinations, negative tests or mask-wearing from fans. Major League Baseball does require vaccines for non-playing personnel to be allowed access to the field. Tritt sang the anthem from the Truist Club seating area behind the backstop.
