    Sweet! I had learned about Gene's participation from his oldest daughter, Kerry Kelly Novick. In a 2007 interview on Icons Radio, Kerry stated that her dad performed the same number from Take Me Out To The Ball Game." called "The Hat My Dear Ol' Father Wore" at the inauguration. I guess with Gene & Pres. Kennedy's Irish extraction, this was quite special to see. I loved it in the movie & I'm not Irish! Thanks for posting…
