La tierra de los libres y la patria de los valientes

At Cinco de Mayo night for the Chicago White Sox, the National Anthem was sung in English. Another battle not re-enacted.

However, a mariachi band performed pregame at U.S. Cellular Field, and the public address system played the Macarena, many Spanish-language pop songs, "Margaritaville" and "Low Rider." Fireworks ended the night. A very American holiday.
