Today Is the 25th Anniversary of TV Roger McDowell Spitting on Kramer and Newman

On Seinfeld, the Mets game after which Kramer and Newman are spat upon by a member of the team is described as happening on June 14, 1987. But the Mets game that day didn't actually play out the way it was described on the show (nor were the Mets even playing the Phillies that day, as Newman says they were). And so the Big Lead today tries to pin down which game could have actually inspired the episode, in which Keith Hernandez, playing himself, is falsely accused of hawking the loogie in question. But regardless of which game inspired it (assuming any real game actually did), the lesson here is clear: Never overlook the possibility of a second spitter.
