Emily Shecter of Wellington sang the national anthem on Saturday, Feb. 24 at the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches, where the Atlanta Braves played the Houston Astros.
Shecter auditioned for the honor several weeks ago. She is 16 years old and attends Wellington High School in the Fine Arts Academy. Jacob Shecter, her 12-year-old brother, announced the start of the game.
The family, including parents Jim and Robin, attended the evening with their dogs, Sandy and Boomer. The evening featured the special event “Bark in the Park.” A portion of the proceeds from the game went to the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.
