Santa Rosa girl belts out National Anthem before 'Battle of the Bay' (w/video)

Who's more excited — you or 12-year-old Hannah Hosier — that the Giants and A's meet tonight at AT&T Park for the opening game of the pre-season Battle of the Bay exhibition series?

Well, will you be there to sing the National Anthem in front of more than 40,000 people?

Legions of people sent in audition tapes for the honor. And the Giants organization chose Hannah, a sixth-grader at Santa Rosa's Hidden Valley School.

This won't be the first National Anthem performance for Hannah, a Santa Rosa native who simply loves to sing. Her renditions have launched an Analy High football game and a couple games of the Santa Rosa Girls Softball League.

But tonight she hits the big time. The Giants sent her four tickets, so after the Anthem she'll enjoy the game with parents Regina and Scott Hosier and younger sister Hailey.

We'll follow up with Hannah once her feet touch back down on solid ground.
