Jerry Seinfeld, an East Hampton resident, it set to join Keith Hernandez, Ron Darling and Gary Cohen in the New York Mets announcing booth Tuesday night for the home game versus the San Francisco Giants.
Seinfeld, a baseball lover who built his own private ball field in East Hampton, will help announce the 7:10 game for SNY, and will take part in the pre-show beginning at 6 p.m.
“Four guys who love to talk sharing one broadcast booth sounds like a bad idea on its face. I don’t even know if the chairs will fit,” Seinfeld said in a statement. “But to spend an evening with Keith, Ron and Gary, I will stand if I have to. Those guys, and the incredible Bobby Ojeda, are the all-star team of baseball broadcasting.”
Hernandez guest starred as himself on Seinfeld’s eponymous sitcom in 1992.
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld and Keith Hernandez are getting back together.
