The Peninsula Men's Gospel Singers ushered in the winning spirit on Monday, Aug. 20, by singing the national anthem at SAFECO Field. The Mariners beat the Cleveland Indians 5-3 following the group's performance.
Singing at the game was the first time the gospel singers performed at a Major League Baseball game. A caravan of family went with the singers to watch the performance and game, and some relatives even flew in from as far away as Los Angeles, Calif.
