Giddy Up! Cyclones to Honor “Seinfeld”

This summer, the Brooklyn Cyclones will be cashing in on the continued popularity of former NBC show “Seinfeld.” Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Yesterday, the team announced a new “Salute to Seinfeld” promotion for their July 5th game against the Aberdeen IronBirds. In honor of the 25th anniversary of the “Seinfeld” premiere, the Cyclones will be offering a variety of Seinfeld giveaways and festivities. Here’s a sampling:

  • MCU Park will be temporarily renamed Vandelay Industries Park, and the foul poles will be called “Festivus Poles”
  • The first 2,500 fans who arrive will receive a complimentary Keith Hernandez “Magic Loogie” Bobblehead (Hoochie Mama!)
  • Any fan who can show a business card proving they are a “Latex Salesman” a la George’s alter ego will receive a free ticket
  • Any mailmen who wear their uniform to the game will get to throw out a ceremonial first pitch
  • Anyone actually named George Costanza can join the radio broadcast as a color analyst for one inning
  • Cyclones players will wear puffy shirts during batting practice before the game
  • There will be an “Elaine Dancing Contest,” a closest to the whale’s blow hole competition, and cereal eating contests. Also, a game of “Risk” will be played on the concourse.
  • The PA announcer will be a “low-talker”

Complaints about any of the above? You can visit the Cyclones information table for an “airing of grievances.”

For even more information on this one night only event, check out the Cyclones’ announcement on their website: Tickets to “Salute to Seinfeld Night” will go on sale May 10th at 10am; however, you can get access to a special pre-sale by following the Cyclones on Facebook and Twitter. The Cyclones’ promotion schedule indicates that there will also be fireworks after the game that night.
