Stop Playing "Proud to be an American" During Minnesota Twins Games sign now

We, the below undersigned, as fans of Major League Baseball, and specifically the Minnesota Twins, do hereby request that the song "Proud to be an American" no longer be played during the 7th inning stretch during Twins games played at the Metrodome, or any other home venue where the Minnesota Twins may play at a future date.







We are, for the most part, citizens of the United States and we are proud of our country and the freedom it represents. However, we do not feel that the song "Proud to be an American" represents the spirit and history of baseball or the Minnesota Twins and view it as phony post 9/11 patriotism.







With great pride we will stand and pay respect to our country during the "Star Spangled Banner" before games, as the "Star Spangled Banner is the anthem of our great country and the playing of the Star Spangled Banner" before games is in accordance with the rich tradition of Major League Baseball and the Minnesota Twins.







To further show our disapproval of the playing of "Proud to be an American", the below undersigned pledge to remain seated during the seventh inning stretch, until such time that Take Me Out to the Ballgame is the only song played at the half-way point of the seventh inning.
