Brooklyn Cyclones minor leaguers to wear 'Saved By The Bell' jerseys
Like they did with "Seinfeld Night," the Mets minor league team is appropriating the colors of "Bayside High" into uniforms to be worn in conjunction with a tribute night for the show.
The minor-league team that brought us "Seinfeld Night" is back with another re-run idea in 2015. The Brooklyn Cyclones, a New York Mets Class A affiliate in the short-season New York-Penn League, will wear jerseys inspired by "Saved By The Bell" in the coming season. The threads are part of a tribute night scheduled for June 24.
And here the jersey is:
It looks like a Hawaiian shirt, which means it fits the "Saved By the Bell" attitude of being fun and colorful. Pink flamingoes, giant cell phones and luminous sunglasses dot the jerseyscape.
In case your memory fails, or you weren't there, "Saved By The Bell" was a comedy that ran from 1989-1993 on NBC and featured teens from Bayside High — Zack Morris, A.C. Slater, Screech Powers, Kelly Kapowski, Lisa Turtle and Jessie Spano, primarily.
As we could tell from the reunion Jimmy Fallon put on earlier this week, the actors who played those characters are in their early 40s now (except for Dustin Diamond, who's 37 and in some legal trouble), and yet they still look fresh out of high school, more or less. Most of the cast went on to do other successful projects, but they'll be known for "Saved By The Bell" forever. (There's little chance that anyone's going to do a "Franklin and Bash" baseball jersey for Mark-Paul Gosselaar in 20 years — just saying.)
There's nothing in the Cyclones description of the night's events to indicate that any of the stars will be on hand to celebrate in June. So we'll just have to settle for Fallon's reunion. But getting a Lark Voorhies or a Dennis Haskins (Mr. Belding) to come out to the ballpark would be keen.
