The gift of a announcement during the 7th inning stretch depends on the person. If you think this person would enjoy an announcement during the 7th inning stretch then you should definitely do it.
Oddly, the fattest President ever... W.H. Taft. He once watched a baseball game and during the 7th inning, he got up to stretch. Others, out of respect, wanted to stretch with Taft.
The 7th inning stretch (assuming your talking about baseball) is approximately 15 minutes.
The 7th inning.
baseball doesn't have half time, just the 7th inning stretch
The seventh-inning stretch song has always traditionally been "Take Me Out to the Ball Game", and the Minnesota Twins are no exception. On Sundays however, they add "God Bless America" before singing baseball's anthem.
In baseball language, there is no first or second half as one sees in an American football game. Now the game has nine innings. Speaking mathematically, when the game reaches its 4.5 worth of innings played, that can be called a half. Benchmarks of tradition are the 7th inning stretch which is the end of the visiting team's 7th inning. The time between the top half of the 7th inning, and when the bottom half begins, it's called the 7th inning stretch. In many baseball stadiums a song such as "God Bless America" is played, normally from a recording.
It is the last inning of the game and what can be the outcome of a game.
Once upon a time, in the baseball years of lore, a president was attending a game (can't remember which), in the middle of the seventh inning, he, quite literally, stood to stretch. The other fans, upon seeing the president stand, rose out of respect (respecting a president!!!)...and it has stuck as tradition ever since.

The Seventh-Inning Stretch is a tradition in Baseball that takes place between the halves of the seventh inning of any game. Fans generally stand up and stretch out their arms, legs, necks, backs, calves, fingers, elbows, and other muscles and sometimes walk around. It is a popular time to get a late-inning snack as well; many teams end beer sales at this point. The stretch also serves as a short break for the players.
On October 19, 2010, singer/actor Patrick Wilson sang "God Bless America" during the 7th inning stretch.
