World Series Game 4: Zooey Deschanel To Sing National Anthem

FOX never misses an opportunity to cross-promote. Star of FOX's new show, "New Girl," Zooey Deschanel will sing the national anthem prior to Game 4 of the World Series. 

She's not exactly what comes to mind when I think of Texas, but, she's gaining popularity and has a show on FOX. Deschanel also has an album coming out on Tuesday, coming out on an independent label. There's some amusement to be found in the fact that Deschanel has a show on a major network, is singing the national anthem on national television prior to the World Series, but has an album coming out with an independent label. 

Regardless, she's a better choice than Disney star Demi Lovato, who will be singing the Star Spangled Banner prior to Game 5 of the World Series on Monday night. Lovato, though, is a Dallas native at least.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. CT.
