The San Diego Padres are apologizing for a bizarre moment before a game.
The San Diego Gay Men's Chorus was set to perform the National Anthem Saturday night, but a track of a woman played over the intercom while the men stood on the field.
The men said they felt embarrassed and wondered if the incident was a joke.
The Padres apologized, saying that playing the track was a mistake. Their investigations show there was no malicious intent on any part of their staff.
The organization also said that they have terminated the third party contractor responsible for the error.
