Seinfeld to join Mets booth for Tuesday's game

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld and Keith Hernandez are getting back together.

Seinfeld -- a longtime Mets fan and the creator of "Seinfeld," which Hernandez guest-starred on in 1992 -- will join Ron Darling, Gary Cohen and Hernandez in the SNY announcers' booth during New York's game against the Giants on Tuesday night, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Seinfeld, who previously called a Mets game in June 2010, also will appear on SNY's pregame show at 6 p.m. ET, according to The Reporter.

"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 told The Reporter. "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 and Seinfeld worked on Seinfeld in 1992, when the former Mets first baseman appeared as himself in a two-part episode called "The Boyfriend," in which he is accused of spitting on Newman (Wayne Knight) and Kramer (Michael Richards) following a Mets game. Hernandez also breaks plans with Seinfeld in order to go out with Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) before Seinfeld later breaks off the friendship.
