HOUSTON (CBS Houston) The U.S. Exhibition game against the Toronto Blue Jays and the Houston Astros saw a man make his first strike even before the game began.

Singer Jeff Fuller botched the lyrics in “O Canada” as well as the “The Star-Spangled Banner” before the Toronto Blue Jays hosted the Houston Astros on Wednesday.

With the slip ups perhaps being chalked up to nerves, Fuller tried to rectify his mistakes as he sung the national anthems representing both teams.

Some fans showed him mercy and cheered him on despite his musical fumbles but others booed him and demanded that he leave the field.

The Blue Jays’ mascot greeted Fuller as he left the field and the Toronto manager John Gibbons shook Fuller’s hand while appearing to take mercy on his soul: “Poor guy, nowhere to hide,” Gibbons said. “I admire him for sticking out there and doing it.”

In the end, it was a song of victory that the Houston Astros sung; Toronto lost 10-1 to the Astros.
