Jerry Seinfeld Will Join Booth To Call New York Mets Game
It’s no secret that Jerry Seinfeld is a huge New York Mets fan. Even the character ‘Jerry’ from the legendary show Seinfeld was a huge Mets fan. The comedian always attends many games each season and now it looks like he’s going to get to live out a dream, again. Seinfeld will join Gary Cohen, Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez as part of the Mets’ broadcast team on Tuesday. Seinfeld also joined the booth back in 2010.
The comedian had this to say on his upcoming gig and what it will be like to work in a four-man booth:
“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. But to spend an evening with Keith, Ron and Gary, I will stand if I have to.”
Fans of his show will remember that Hernandez appeared in an episode of Seinfeld in 1992 and made out with Elaine Benes. “Come on, I won the MVP in 79. I can do whatever I want to.”
The New York Yankees were also tied into the sitcom as George Costanza worked in the team’s front office. ‘The Boss’ George Steinbrenner was never seen on camera, but he was voiced by Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm creator, Larry David.
