July 26, 2011
Video footage of NONPOINT guitarist Zach Broderick playing the national anthem on July 8 at the Florida Marlins game at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida can be seen below.
Commented Broderick: "I've been a HUGE baseball fan since I was a kid. When I was asked if I would be interested in playing the anthem for the Florida Marlins, I jumped at the opportunity.
"It was such a surreal experience and an honor to be on the pitchers' mound with my guitar; playing the anthem, and see all the players lined up with their hats over their hearts. It really was a dream come true!"
NONPOINT previously wrote the 2011 Florida Marlins fight song "Fear The Fish", which is played before and during every Marlins home game.
In other news, NONPOINT frontman Elias Soriano became a first-time father on Saturday, July 23, having welcomed a baby girl by the name of Marley Amour Soriano.
