James Taylor To Sing National Anthem At World Series

James Taylor will help kick off the World Series match between the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals by singing "The Star Spangled Banner" before game two at Boston's Fenway Park on Thursday, October 24.

Taylor, who spoke with the Berkshire Eagle on the opportunity, says he's just happy to see his Sox doing so well this year:

"It's hard to believe for a Red Sox fan that we're actually going back to the World Series, especially after last year. I guess the message is that Sox fans can never give up hope despite the roller coaster we're usually on."

Taylor, a native Bostonian, sang the national anthem for World Series match ups at Fenway in 2004 and 2007. The Red Sox won both of those games.
