Will it be a full house? Bob Saget to sing at White Sox game

May 22, 2012|RedEye

The weekly announcements from the White Sox about the activities surrounding home stands are usually pretty sedate: a local choir singing the anthem, a radio personality throwing out the first pitch, a pregame concert featuring a high school band.

But that wasn't the case Tuesday afternoon.

The White Sox, preparing for a six-game home stand that started Tuesday night vs. division rival Minnesota, announced, among other things, that star Bob Saget—of "Full House" fame—would sing the anthem before Saturday's game vs. Cleveland.

That in itself is not a big deal. Actors, musicians, political figures, local "celebrities," etc., show up for pregame festivities all the time. Usually to throw out the first pitch.

Saget is know for a lot things—Danny Tanner being the most famous—however singing isn't exactly one of them. The 55-year-old does incorporate songs into his stand-up act, but they are not of the level of the anthem.

The YouTube videos of this performance should be good.
