Singer Ronan Tynan is a Yankee wannabe

NO NON-YANKEE FANS NEED APPLY!

Tynan — famous for his stunning rendition of “God Bless America” during the seventh-inning stretch at Yankee Stadium’s more significant games — loves baseball and the entire way of life in States.

“I love Ireland, but I’m really crazy about this country and I’m thrilled how great it’s been to me,” Tynan said while calling from his Manhattan apartment. “I love everything about America. I’m crazy about the Yankees and the sport itself. It’s the perfect game. I love the American people and how things are here. It’s a wonderful country. There’s no place that quite celebrates their holidays like America.”

...Tynan will be offering more than holiday numbers at the Basie. He’ll also be previewing songs from his as-yet-untitled forthcoming album of contemporary tunes made famous by such acts as U2, Eric Clapton and even New Jersey’s own Bruce Springsteen.

“I can’t get Springsteen’s “The Rising’ out of my head,” Tynan said. “The song I love to sing is “Into the Fire.’ The song is just amazing. He’s such an awesome talent and incredible artist.”

Of course, Tynan will offer his version of “God Bless America” at the Basie. He said he recently received word that he’ll be performing on Opening Day at the new Yankee Stadium in April.

“It’s an honor,” Tynan said. “I love my association with the Yankees.”

And he's a faster runner than Jose Molina.

"Stunning" is certainly one word for it...

Banning Tynan specifically and GBA broadly from marring the 7th inning of all future MLB games should be one of the Five Things Obama Should Do About Sports, if it wasn't on that list already.
