Jerry Seinfeld is heading to the announcers booth for Tuesday's New York Mets game.

The lifelong Mets fan -- as chronicled on his beloved 1990-98 NBC series Seinfeld -- will join Keith Hernandez, Ron Darling and Gary Cohen in calling the game against the San Francisco Giants for SNY, the official TV home of the Mets.

Seinfeld also will appear on SNY's pregame show at 6 p.m. alongside lead studio analyst Bob Ojeda and host Chris Carlin.

"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," said Seinfeld, creator and host of the Emmy-nominated web show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. "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."

This will mark the second time that Seinfeld has called a Mets game, following the June 23, 2010, game versus Detroit. Watch video below.

It's also worth noting that former Mets first baseman Hernandez appeared -- as himself -- on Seinfeld in 1992. In the two-part episode, dubbed "The Boyfriend," Newman (Wayne Knight) and Kramer (Michael Richards) accuse Hernandez of spitting on them during a game; he also breaks a "date" with Jerry to go out with Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus).
