So, I wouldn’t blame you for having missed these recent national anthem stories that were good news. Miss them no more…here they are.

Wisconsin trumpet player Jim Doepke has played the national anthem in 28 different major league baseball parks- and he’s on a quest to make that an even 30.
“It’s a great way to give back and honor everyone who’s given us our freedom,” Doepke told a local CBS affiliate in Wisconsin after playing for his home team.
Errol Robinson, a player for the Tulsa Drillers (a farm team for the Dodgers), gave a couple of kids a lesson on respecting the national anthem.

I moved to the states with my family 5 years ago. This country welcomed us with a big heart. Today I had the privilege to perform the US National Anthem at the Dodger stadium. I dedicate this to you with our appreciation to your generosity for diversity. #StarSpangledBanner pic.twitter.com/54Td6kkxfr
