Of course Larry David catches the #Yankees in L.A., and, of course, since there's no Mick, DiMaggio at Dinky Donuts, Tartabull headed to PBS, Paul O'Neill catching a ball in his hat, Steinbrenner hiding under a desk from a bomb and Joe Pepitone Day … he yawns. pic.twitter.com/cRGDs86Mcq

The great Larry David caught the New York Yankees in L.A. on Friday night but couldn’t help himself from yawning. He also denied Michael Kay.
No, there was no Mickey Mantle. Danny Tartabull wasn’t on his way to PBS headquarters. Joe DiMaggio wasn’t spotted at Dinky Donuts. Paul O’Neill wasn’t forced to catch a ball in his hat. George Steinbrenner didn’t have to hide under George Costanza’s desk. And by no measure was it Joe Pepitone day.
Interestingly enough, in classic Larry David fashion, the cameras caught him yawning (video above).
With the Yankees up comfortably in the contest, thanks to shots from Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and Gleyber Torres, and a grand-slam from Didi Gregorius, YES Network’s Michael Kay revealed an interesting tidbit about David’s night.
Kay invited him to stop by the broadcast booth, one that featured Alex Rodriguez sitting in with Kay and David Cone. David didn’t really think it was worth his time, as Kay explained.
Of course, both the Yankees and Mets enjoyed heavy roles in Seinfeld over its historic nine-year run. The Yankees were sprinkled in by David while the Mets, showcasing a Keith Hernandez/JFK episode in Season 3, were part of Jerry Seinfeld’s domain.
Currently in the top of the eighth inning, New York leads Los Angeles by a score of 8-2. The Yankees are looking to bounce back from a sweep at the hands of the Oakland Athletics.
