WASHINGTON — After getting a taste of summer-like weather this past week, it’s time to start thinking baseball.
It was the ninth annual national anthem auditions. Fifty people were invited to perform The Star-Spangled Banner a cappella in the empty stadium to a panel of judges.
Sara Sturm, from Centreville, Virginia, was among those who were auditioning. She’s also one of the top 50 American Idol contestants.
Eleven-year-old Sofia Parfomak, from Arlington, was also auditioning.
The contestants should know by Friday if they’ll be singing at a home game. The Nationals home opener is April 7.
