The Samoan-born New Zealander,  who is on a fellowship to the San Francisco Opera posted footage of his amazing performance to his Facebook page with the caption:

“My first ever baseball game I went to was the SF GIANTS vs NY METS… And I sang the anthem” – People would probably think I was lying… Hahaha.”

Pati was clearly elated with the honor, giving a fist pump and a shout of “woohoo!” to the camera, having received rapturous applause from the thousands of fans in attendance for his pitch perfect performance.

The New York Mets ended up downing the San Francisco Giants by five runs to two.
