A singer stepped up to the plate to sing the National Anthem as a substitute and ended up failing miserably.

According to Fox News:

A North Carolina man issued an apology this week for what many have called the “worst rendition” of the national anthem, sung Sunday during an independent minor league baseball game.

Chuck Hayworth was a last-minute fill-in for the scheduled singer, who had gotten sick, when he belted out "The Star-Spangled Banner" before a game between the Atlantic League's High Point Rockers and Sugar Land Skeeters in High Point, the News & Observer of Raleigh reported.

In a Facebook post, Hayworth said “the heat had gotten to me” and that his “leg began to cramp” in the middle of his performance.

“By no means was this any disrespect to our country or our organization, nor all those who serve it,” he posted.

  The team apologized to all Americans and Hayword has been offered help from voice coaches if he would like to redeem himself.
