(KGTV) — A Delaware school is apologizing after the infamous Rosanne Barr rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" recorded in San Diego was played before a recent high school football game.

The Seaford School District said Wednesday they are unsure of how the recording was played before Seaford High School's Tuesday night football game, according to the News Journal of Wilmington.

A letter from Superintendent David Perrington said the pregame proceedings with be improved and they are looking into the recent fumble.

Students and families were shocked when Barr's version of the national anthem, recorded before a San Diego Padres game on July 25, 1990, blared over the intercom to usher in the game.

Perrington's letter says the district usually plays the national anthem before games and will pay a district-approved version in the future.
