It's Possible John Kruk Has Never Seen An Episode Of 'Seinfeld,' Has No Idea Who 'The Woman' In The Show Is

'Seinfeld' is one of the few shows ever made that you don't have to really watch, or even enjoy, to know the names of the main characters. I'd put 'The Simpsons' and 'Friends' in that same category as well. Former Philadelphia Phillies' great turned broadcaster John Kruk wouldn't agree with that statement, at least not when it comes to 'Seinfeld.' During a recent Phillies broadcast, Keith Hernandez came up in conversation. Hernandez is now an analyst for the New York Mets, but anytime his name comes up a mention of his guest appearances in 'Seinfeld' are typically quick to follow. Philles play-by-play man Tom McCarthy made a reference to the show, specifically when Newman calls Hernandez "pretty boy" and Kruk had no clue what he was talking about.
