WATCH: College Baseball Player Goes Viral With OUTSTANDING Performance Of National Anthem On Electric Guitar

On Saturday, in a stellar performance that blew the crowd away, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi outfielder Tre Jones III performed a version of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ on an electric guitar for the school's Senior Day. 

The performance featured Jones ripping it on the guitar, even having his own little solo at the end of his musical display. The crowd at Chapman Field in Corpus Christi gave the baseball junior a massive round of applause, but even more people flocked to social media to praise Jones and his patriotic display.
In a tweet from the official Islanders Baseball account, the team for A&M-Corpus Christi shared a clip of Jones’ stellar performance, garnering tons of replies, and numerous comparisons to rock n’ roll legend Jimmi Hendrix. One user wrote, “Outstanding! This talented young man has been raised right! Wish there were more like him.”
  Another Twitter user wrote a heartfelt message, writing, “As a disabled vet I am very happy that you played the National Anthem this way. You learned the music and just didn’t sing the words. I hope you have a long and wonderful baseball career or whatever you do in life.”
  The Islanders baseball team would go on to lose 1-5 to the opposition for the day but are still sitting at a comfortable 17-13 for the 2023 season. Jones is having quite an amazing season, hitting .318 with 61 hits, netting a total of eight doubles, five triples, six home runs, and an amazing 37 runs scored. 

It’s nice to see a true American patriot in contemporary sports. In a time with so many athletes disrespecting the national anthem while abusing the liberties given to them through the flag, it’s heartwarming to know that there are those out there who can still see the beauty and the significance of respecting our American anthem.
