SEEN AND HEARD AT NATIONALS PARK

If the Nationals ever need a fill-in performer for the national anthem, Willie Harris might just be the man. Just before Tuesday’s singer ran through her rehearsal during afternoon batting practice, Harris grabbed the mike and sang the first two verses of “The Star Spangled Banner.” His voice was a bit high-pitched, but he was pretty good. So add another position to the Nats’ super utility man’s resume: left fielder, center fielder, second baseman, third baseman, shortstop, anthem singer.
