Before the first pitch, Kristin Chenoweth hit the first home run of the night.
The singer and actress came out in Mets gear and delivered an outstanding rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner, eliciting a roar from the Mets faithful.
Chenoweth, an Oklahoma native but longtime New York resident, showed her spirit earlier today by giving her Twitter followers a preview of the performance:
After Chenoweth finished, Twitter couldn’t contain their excitement for the former Tony award winner.
All this excitement and nary a pitch thrown. A good start to the NLCS.
