One hundred Suzuki string students from Illinois, Missouri, and Wisconsin took the field of Busch Stadium in St. Louis on Sunday, July 22, to perform the national anthem, directed by Suzuki violin teacher Joseph Kaminsky of St. Louis, before the last match of a three-game series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs, who have a 127-year-old rivalry. (The Cardinals won the series, 23 to 1.)
