Over the course of it’s run on NBC in the 1990s, Seinfeld was filled with plenty of New York Mets references thanks to series star Jerry Seinfeld’s love of the team. Now that the show has been off the air for over a decade and it’s been 25 years since the series premiered, it’s time for the Mets to give back a little.
According to The Wrap, the Mets minor league ball club called the Brooklyn Cyclones will be honoring Seinfeld and his show this July with ‘Seinfeld Night’ at the stadium.
On July 5, the team is transforming MCU Park into an arena of references to the classic sitcom, starting with renaming the ballpark itself Vandelay Industries Park for one night only. The foul poles in right and left field will be renamed the Festivus Poles, too.
Seinfeld himself has continued to give to the Mets by hopping into the play-by-play booth every so often to join friend and sometimes Seinfeld guest star Keith Hernandez while the games are being televised.
There’s no word on if Seinfeld or anyone from the show will attend, but the night already sounds like the most exciting minor league game we’ll see this year.
