Jimmy Kimmel Welcomes Immigrants to America

Flag Day was started in 1916 and it is a day for patriotism. We have heard a lot lately about immigrants and immigration, and we seem to have forgotten that this is a nation of immigrants. People who come to this country because they believe they can build a better life. Every week immigrants from all over the world take the oath of citizenship in courthouses, libraries and auditoriums across the country, without much pomp or circumstance. Becoming an American shouldn't feel like a visit to the DMV. It's a big deal and we think it deserves a big deal, so we invited a group of brand new citizens to come to the show for the introduction to this country they deserve.

Proudly created with Wix.com Vanderbilt Commodores baseball team is an American National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) college baseball team from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. The team participates in the Eastern division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC) and plays its home games on campus at Hawkins Field. The Commodores are coached by three-time National Coach of the Year and three-time SEC Coach of the Year, Tim Corbin. During Corbin's tenure as head coach, Vanderbilt has become one of the premier college baseball programs in the United States, responsible for 19 first-round picks in the MLB draft. History Vanderbilt first fielded a baseball team in 1886.Herbert Charles Sanborn, the chair of the Department of Philosophy and Psychology from 1921 to 1942, who was also the president of the Nashville German-American Society, coached the team in 1912–1913. Baseball became a scholarship sport in 1968. The Commodores secured only three NCAA appearances in the 20th century—in 1973, 1974, and 1980. They had only three other winning seasons in SEC play in the first 35 years of the scholarship era. However, they have been to every NCAA tournament but one since 2004.The team qualified for the NCAA Super Regionals in 2004, had the nation's top recruiting class in 2005 according to Baseball America,made the NCAA field again in 2006, and won the 2007 SEC regular-season and SEC tournament crowns. The Commodores were ranked first in most polls for a majority of the 2007 season and earned the #1 national seed for the 2007 NCAA tournament. Vanderbilt's victory over the University of Virginia in the finals of the 2014 NCAA tournament marks the program's first national title and second appearance in the College World Series, having first appeared in 2011. In 2019, Vanderbilt's fourth College World Series appearance, they beat Michigan two games to one in the finals, winning their second national title.

In running large athletic events, the impression a PA Announcer can have on all fans is an important one — and I never had to think twice about the positive impression that I knew someone would leave with when Dave was behind the mic. I could always breathe a breath of fresh air because I knew his job would be done with incredible professionalism, enthusiasm and great attention to detail.  Simply stated, our events were better because of his presence and great communication to all in attendance.
