While it's not exactly Festivus, a New York minor league baseball team is hosting the next best thing: "Seinfeld" night.

Tonight the Brooklyn Cyclones are remaking their stadium in Coney Island in honor of the 25th anniversary of "Seinfeld's" premiere on July 5, 1989.

To honor the ultimate 90's sitcom, a mailman will throw out the first ceremonial pitch (a reference to notorious postman character Newman). There will be a dance contest for people who can prove they dance as poorly as Julia Louis-Dreyfus' character Elaine Benes and the players will have to don the infamous puffy shirt during batting practice.
