Brooklyn Cyclones Holding Seinfeld Themed Baseball Game

The Brooklyn Cyclones, a minor league baseball team, will be holding a “Salute to Seinfeld” night on July 5th. The game will be held at MUC Park which, for one night only, will be referred to as Vandelay Industries Park.

A mailman in full uniform will throw the first pitch and everyone, at the end of the game, gets to run the bases (although they claim anyone named Jerry will get a head start).

They’ll also have a variety of games to play, including Risk, an Elaine dancing competition, a cereal eating competition, a “closest to the pin/whale’s blow hole competition” in honor of the “Is That A Titleist?” episode, and much more.

Players will be sporting “puffy shirts” during their batting practice, will have to refer to the foul poles as Festivus poles, and anyone named George Costanza can be a radio commentator for their game.

In addition to latex salesmen getting a free ticket to the game (for which you need adequate proof to qualify), the first 25,000 visitors will get a Keith Hernandez “Magic Loogie” bobblehead.

Even if you’re not a fan of baseball, this makes the game worth attending.


Tickets for the game are now on sale and for more information you can call 718-37-BKLYN, or visit the Brooklyn Cyclones website.
