MLB All-Star Game, 1994

It was a beautiful day on July 12th 1994 when the 65th MLB All-Star Game took place at Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Before the game kicked off, everyone in attendance was treated to a powerful rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” by Grammy-Award winning artist Meat Loaf.

Meat Loaf was accompanied by the 1994-1995 Penn State ROTC Color Guard to deliver a breathtaking performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” and it was considered the highlight of the whole day.

Fun Fact: The same day, Cowboy Junkies lead singer Margo Timmins sang the “Canadian National Anthem” and too was accompanied by the 1994-1995 Penn State ROTC Color Guard.
