TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Even though the weather was wet and the Toledo Mud Hens lost their home opener, there was a bright spot in downtown Toledo Thursday afternoon: Our very own Chrys Peterson sang the National Anthem!

She says it was something she was very excited to do, although she admits she was nervous.

"I am overwhelmed and humbled by all your support!" said Peterson. "Singing the National Anthem at the Mud Hens home opener yesterday was WAY out of my comfort zone, but you have all helped to make it such a great experience and memory for me!"
