While many know him for his acting, Neil Patrick Harris got a chance to showcase his singing ability before Game 3 of the American League Divisional Series.
NPH impressed the sold-out crowd at Yankee Stadium with his rendition of the national anthem before first pitch at the Cleveland Indians and Yankees game Sunday. He held his hand over his heart while looking to the outfield at a military presentation of the American flag.
