Jerry Seinfeld, a longtime New York Mets fan, will reunite with former Mets star Keith Hernandez, who was a guest on a memorable episode of "Seinfeld" that included the infamous "Magic Loogie" incident. (See the clip below.)
Seinfeld will be in the broadcast booth for today’s Mets game against the San Francisco Giants for SNY, the television home of the Mets, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports. Seinfeld will appear on the pregame show on SNY at 6 p.m., and will join Hernandez and the rest of the broadcast team in calling the game, the story says.
Also calling the game will be Ron Darling and Gary Cohen, with lead studio analyst Bob Ojeda and host Chris Carlin on board for the pregame show.
"Four guys who love to talk sharing one broadcast booth sounds like a bad idea on its face. I don’t even know if the chairs will fit," Seinfeld said. "But to spend an evening with Keith, Ron and Gary, I will stand if I have to. Those guys, and the incredible Bobby Ojeda, are the all-star team of baseball broadcasting."
Seinfeld previously called a Mets game in 2010. Hernandez appeared as himself on "Seinfeld" in 1992, in a two-part episode called "The Boyfriend."
