While the singer is known for his many hits including “I’d Do Anything for Love” and “Paradise by the Dashboard Light”, it was a performance in Pittsburgh that many baseball fans remember.

During the 1994 MLB All-Star Game at Three Rivers Stadium, Meat Loaf sang a powerful rendition of the National Anthem.


He also performed in the celebrity home run derby, but did he best work behind the mic, not at the plate.
