    I am a public address announcer for sporting events. Many times games are scheduled back to back with little time in between games. The venue is not emptied and re-opened between these games. My understanding is that in these cases, the National Anthem is only played before the first game. I was always taught that the national Anthem is played once per "event." In this case that "event" would be the double header of games. Am I correct?

    The flag is raised once per day, you can leave it down and raise it for the first event, but then it stays.
