Lil Wayne is not your average sports fan. A big league rapper to be sure, Wayne harbors a not-so-secret ambition of one day making the Major League. Until he makes the team, he seems happy to be included anyway he can be — sitting court side, writing songs of support and celebrating victories like he scored the game winning point. And last night he came as close as ever, actually taking the field during the San Fransisco Giants/St. Louis Cardinals game to serenade the stadium with a heartfelt seventh-inning stretch performance of “Take Me Out To The Ball Game.”
As far as try-outs go, Wayne’s was promising. Wearing a Giants’ jersey over his Trukfit hoodie and a Giants’ orange batting glove, he did well enough to propel the Giants to a 6-1 win so they might want to keep him around for the series clinching games to come.
Afterwards, he called the performance a “true life highlight!”
