NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Baseball’s known for peanuts and Cracker Jack, but at this ballgame it might be the pretzels that are making fans thirsty.
The Brooklyn Cyclones dedicated Saturday’s game to all things “Seinfeld.”
Brooklyn Cyclones players warmed up wearing “puffy” shirts. Postal workers threw out the first pitch. And anyone named George Costanza or working in latex sales got in for free.
It was all to mark the 25th anniversary of the debut of the infamous show about nothing.
Memorable guest stars were in the stands, including the actor who played the “Soup Nazi,” the team said.
There was also an appearance from Kenny Kramer, the real Kramer, 1010 WINS Gary Baumgarten reported.
“It’s just amazing how “Seinfeld” is such a hit cause it’s not just here in Brooklyn, it’s in 90 countries across the world,” Kramer said. “And I still run that tour that I do. And at this point because of the advent of the DVDs that are now internationally distributed.”
There was also an Elaine Benes “dance off” and the team rechristened its stadium Vandelay Industries Park for the night.
The team even gave away a bobblehead doll of Mets legend and “Seinfeld” guest star Keith Hernandez.
