Now You Can Enjoy Baseball And 'Seinfeld' At The Same Time

Fans who are equal lovers of "Seinfeld" and baseball will have a rare opportunity to satisfy both passions simultaneously on July 5, when the Brooklyn Cyclones host a "Salute to Seinfeld" night.

The date marks the 25th anniversary of the classic sitcom's premiere, and the minor league team promises to honor it with "non-stop Seinfeld themed entertainment from beginning to end." For instance, the first 2,500 fans into the stadium will be given a Keith Hernandez "Magic Loogie" bobblehead.

Yes, it's sure to be a nice game, pretty boy.

Other "Seinfeld" hat tips will include a low-talking PA announcer and foul ball poles renamed "Festivus Poles." Players will also don puffy shirts for batting practice, and a free ticket will be given to anyone who can prove they're a latex salesman -- provided they don't hail from the Upper East Side.

Cyclones spokesman Billy Harner told ESPN the team has even requested an appearance from Jerry Seinfeld, but he stopped short of saying whether or not the comedian will actually be in attendance.
