College baseball player plays the national anthem on guitar before the game
Texas A&M Corpus Christi outfielder Tre Jones III lit up the crowd at Chapman Field in Corpus Christi on Saturday afternoon when he performed a rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” on Senior Day.
Jones played the national anthem with an electric guitar and gave a small solo at the end of his performance to top it off. When he finished, he received a big round of applause. He followed up the musical ending with a 3-on-4 win at the Platte, but his Islanders team lost 5-1 to Incarnate Word.
