After six long months full of heartbreak and miracles, the very best part of baseball season started on Tuesday, the World Series.
The Houston Astros faced off against the Los Angeles Dodgers in a best of seven series Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium.
The ratings aren’t in yet, but those who did tune in got to see American athletes at their best. Not one Major League Baseball player took a knee during the national anthem.
Here’s video of the performance:

To honor and salute our troops, there was a spectacular flyover at Dodger Stadium.
During the seventh inning, more love for flag, country and military was shown. A group of U.S. military personnel walked out onto the the field, including Petty Officer 2nd Class Mike Dalager, from the United States Coast Guard.
Dalager stepped to the mic and sang “God Bless America.”

Twitter lit up right after Dalager’s performance, most of it positive.
No kneelers at the #WorldSeries as military members sang God Bless America on the field. A great sight to behold. (Go Astros!)

There’s more love for America coming during Game 2 on Wednesday, as Brad Paisley is slated to sing the national anthem.
