NEW YORK — Zooey Deschanel has double duty on Fox: The star of the new series “New Girl” also is performing at the World Series.

Deschanel is from the indie pop duo She & Him. She’ll sing the national anthem at Game 4 of the Major League Baseball seven-game series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers. It airs Sunday on Fox.

Before the actress takes the stage, country singer Trace Adkins will perform the anthem at Game 2 on Thursday, and Ronnie Dunn will do the same two days later at Game 3.

The Cardinals and Rangers battle it out Wednesday night in Game 1 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, where “American Idol” champion Scotty McCreery will perform the national anthem.
