The New York Mets announced earlier today that they have scheduled a Seinfeld-style tribute night to mark the show’s 30th anniversary of its premiere.
The night will feature a reunion between the show’s lead and title character, played by Jerry Seinfeld, and former Mets star first baseman Keith Hernandez, who guest starred during the show’s run while playing for New York in 1992.
Other festivities also include a Jerry Seinfeld bobblehead doll giveaway to the first 25,000 fans who attend the game and concourse greetings from actor Larry Thomas, who played the Emmy Award-nominated character, the “Soup Nazi.”
