Salisbury tenor to sing National Anthem at Cincinnati ball game
Neil Wilkinson, a well-known Salisbury tenor, will be singing the national anthem Monday night at Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park.
Wilkinson will sing the anthem before the start of the Cincinnati Reds’ baseball game against the Houston Astros.
It is the fourth time Wilkinson has sung the anthem before a major league baseball game. Previously, he has sung at the old Shea Stadium in New York, Camden Yards in Baltimore and Banc One Ballpark in Phoenix.
Each time, connections Wilkinson made at the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association banquet in Salisbury have led to his singing appearances.
Marty Brennaman, an NSSA Hall of Fame inductee this spring and longtime voice of the Reds, helped land the anthem engagement for Wilkinson in Cincinnati.
