Game 3 of the World Series saw the New York Mets’ win against the Kansas City Royals.

Billy Joel helped make the New York Mets’ win against the Kansas City Royals extra special during Game 3 of the World Series by joining the crowd for a sing-along of his hit tune “Piano Man.”

Joel, a New York native, couldn’t help but belt out a few lines of his classic song while it played throughout Citi Field during the 8th inning on Friday night (Oct. 30). Playing “Piano Man” has become a tradition for the team in recent years.

Joel, who sported a Mets cap, joyously serenaded the ecstatic crowd while his longtime booking agent, Dennis Arfa, and actor/comedian Kevin James sat beside him. Earlier in the evening, he kicked off Game 3 with a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem.
