Great rendition of "God Bless America" by Marine Sgt. Dan Clark (ret.) at MLB WS. Hint of Traditional Irish folk & great phrasing.—

Feelings are heated and divided over the teams and the announcers (poor Joe Buck!), but baseball fans all agree: Retired Marine Sgt. Dan Clark’s rendition of “God Bless America” during the 7th inning stretch was amazing.
Wow!! The Marine that just sang at the World Series was fabulous. Awesome to see the MLB celebrating the military—

The marine singing "God Bless America" during the 7th inning stretch tonight was passionate and into the song. It was refreshing.—

God bless Sgt. Clark!
A bit of controversy has developed, because now it seems that Dan Clark is not retired from the Marine Corps. Clark did serve in the Marines, but he retired as a sergeant from the Massachusetts State Police. The Marines had given him permission to wear the dress blues, however. The full story here.
