Fans, in groups of one to five, are invited to register on phillies.com to sing the national anthem a cappella for a panel of judges on-field at Citizens Bank Park at the inaugural Phillies "R U Game? Talent Search" to be held on Saturday, March 8, 2014, beginning at 9:00 a.m.
Registration opens on today, Thursday, February 20 on phillies.com. The first 500 fans who register will be guaranteed an audition spot.
"We're excited to showcase our fans in a new way this year through the Phillies R U Game? Talent Search," said Chris Long, Phillies Director, Entertainment. "Who knows what future music super stars we have sitting in the seats of Citizens Bank Park? We're about to find out."
From the pool of contestants, the judges will select a group of 15 finalists to return for the Final Audition Round on Sunday, March 30, 2014 to sing the national anthem on-field using the ballpark sound system.
