On July 5, the Brooklyn Cyclones will hold a "Salute to Seinfeld Night," which comes complete with a Keith Hernandez “Magic Loogie” bobblehead giveaway. Here's the bobblehead:
If you don't get the reference -- I sure as heck don't, Seinfeld was never my thing -- then watch this:
There's a lot more going on than the bobblehead giveway on Seinfeld Night. Here are some more of the particulars, from CBS New York:
– Fans named George Costanza will be able to join the radio broadcast for one inning.
– Do you deliver mail for a living, like Jerry's nemesis Newman? Show up and uniform and throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
– Fans will be able to air their grievances at the team's info booth.
– Foul poles will be referred to as Festivus Poles, and the PA announcer will be a low-talker.
MCU Park in Coney Island will also be renamed "Vandelay Industries Park" for the night. I will say this: The ballpark itself is outstanding. One of the two or three best non-MLB ballparks I've ever been to.
Jerry Seinfeld is a die-hard Mets fan and often goes on local talk radio to discuss the team. The Cyclones are one of the club's Class A affiliates. Single-game tickets go on sale May 10.
