If you were to get to every game of the Hartford Yard Goats this season — which starts this week — and arrive before the first pitch, you’d hear 70 different renditions of “The Star Spangled Banner.”

Henry Smith’s might be one of them. Late this winter, Smith auditioned at Dunkin’ Donuts Park in Hartford, Connecticut. The tryout took place way above home plate, in a glassed-in suite, and while not an acoustical paradise, the view is great.
