    To put your hand over your heart during the singing of the national anthem. That's another newfangled way to infuse your ballpark experience with a little more nationalism. It's supposed to be what you do while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance (which I recite without saying "under God" - I predate that).

    When did it become customary to cover one's heart during The Star-Spangled Banner? I dunno, but I bet it had something to do with 9/11.

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)
