COMSTOCK, Mich. - A 96-year-old WWII veteran delivered his rendition of the national anthem before a Minor League Baseball game.
In video shared by the West Michigan Whitecaps, cheers were heard, people removed their caps and the crowd was on their feet before John Plyman began singing in Comstock, Michigan, on August 5, creating a special moment for spectators. It was the home game for the Whitecaps.
Once he was done, Plyman saluted. The fans cheered once again.
The Whitecaps lost the game to the Dayton Dragons 8-0.
"Thank you John," the announcer was heard saying in the video, "and thank you for your service."
