Major League Baseball kicked off Game Seven of the World Series in a uniquely patriotic way.

It’s a tradition for fans at Progressive Field in Cleveland to sing the national anthem — from the dug out to the nosebleed section.

But instead of a pop-star or Hollywood celebrity, they had the string section of the Cleveland Orchestra accompany more than 38,000 singers — both Cubs and Indians fans.

And it was beautiful:

It’s true that Cleveland rocks, but for Game 7 it was classical rock.
