Seinfeld to grace Mets booth Wednesday

Seinfeld to grace Mets booth Wednesday

It's going to be a laugher next Wednesday at Citi Field.

While the Mets take on the Tigers on the field, in the broadcast booth, Mets fan and comedian Jerry Seinfeld will join Mets player-turned-actor-turned-analyst Keith Hernandez and play-by-play announcer Gary Cohen in a Seinfeld mini-reunion, according to USA Today. Seinfeld is slated to spend at least three innings in the booth.

In the 1992 Seinfeld episode The Boyfriend, Hernandez co-starred and played himself. In the episode, Hernandez, who was romancing Jerry's friend Elaine, asks Seinfeld to help him move. The hilarity continues when Jerry's friends Kramer and Newman accuse the former player of spitting on them after a Mets game, and Seinfeld calls for Hernandez's innocence by claiming a "second-spitter" theory.

According to the report, fans still ask Hernandez if he needs help moving and repeat lines from the episode.

Hernandez said the reunion should be "great fun. I don't speak to Jerry that often."
