Wednesday night's game will be televised nationally on ESPN, but anybody in the New York area or subscribed to MLB.TV might want to tune in to the Mets' SNY broadcast for a few innings. It's going to be gold:â†µ
While the Mets take on the Tigers on the field, in the broadcast booth, Mets fan and comedian Jerry Seinfeld will join Mets player-turned-actor-turned-analyst Keith Hernandez and play-by-play announcer Gary Cohen in a Seinfeld mini-reunion, according to USA Today. Seinfeld is slated to spend at least three innings in the booth.â†µ
If you consider yourself a 'Seinfeld' buff then you might recall that this is somewhat of a 'Seinfeld' reunion. Keith Hernandez was in two 'Seinfeld' episodes during the show's reign and there's sure to be a "nice game, pretty boy," reference.â†µ
The last time the Tigers were on ESPN, Eminem and Jay-Z announced their Detroit/New York concerts. They made the announcement on both local markets, as well. I wouldn't be surprised if Seinfeld also makes at least a half an inning appearance in the ESPN booth.
