Tune-in or set your DVRs! Joe is set to perform the National Anthem Wednesday, October 17 at the home opener of the NLCS playoffs in St. Louis, when the Cardinals take on the San Francisco Giants. The performance will air on FOX at 2:54PM CT and will reunite Joe with the team he spent many a childhood summer night watching when his father Mike was a security guard at Busch Stadium.
"I'm excited and always thrilled to see a Cardinals game - especially in the post-season when it's against an historic team like the Giants. The last two World Series championship teams meeting together in the league championship doesn't happen very often," Joe says.
Joe was five when he saw his first-ever baseball game, and it was, of course, in St. Louis. He has had the honor of performing the Anthem at several LCS playoffs.
