SMOAK SOUR ON AN­THEM SINGER

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

Cana­dian singer-song­writer Jo­ce­lyn Alice is in hot wa­ter with the coun­try and Toronto Blue Jays in­fielder Justin Smoak af­ter ap­par­ently gig­gling dur­ing her ren­di­tion of O Canada at Ma­jor League Baseball’s all-star game in Mi­ami on Tues­day night. So­cial me­dia was all atwit­ter with the lat­est bungling of an an­them at the game. Smoak started the con­test at first base, pick­ing up a hit and a walk be­fore be­ing pulled, while Blue Jays team­mate Roberto Osuna pitched one solid in­ning of re­lief, al­low­ing one hit and no runs. The game proved to be a bat­tle of pitch­ing arms as it couldn’t be set­tled in nine in­nings, go­ing into ex­tras tied at 1-1. For the fi­nal score and com­plete cov­er­age, see thes­pec.com.
