KANSAS CITY, Kan. – A KCK police officer will get to fulfill a lifelong dream. Patrol Officer Dustin Dierenfeldt will sing the National Anthem before a Royals game this season.

Officer Dierenfeldt loves singing and Royals baseball. Those two interests inspired him to be among 600 vocalists who applied to sing the Star Spangled Banner at a game this year.

He sent in an audition video - then did another audition at Kauffman Stadium and was one of just 85 fans selected for the honor.

“You know you have those moments where you`re given goosebumps because you hear the Star Spangled Banner, and that`s the opportunity that I want to portray,” Officer Dierenfeldt told FOX 4.

He says it will be an honor to sing for all the players and fans. The date of his performance is to be determined.
