It was a rather awesome moment prior to the first playoff game in the ballpark's history (and the first in Pittsburgh since 1992).

Of course, TBS didn't bother to show any of it. They didn't show the anthem, didn't show the baseline introductions, didn't show the ceremonial first pitch. Nothing. So, to make up for that, here is the anthem:
