Mets minor league team to host “Saved by the Bell” night


After their successful “Seinfeld” night last year, the Mets’ Single-A affiliate, the Brooklyn Cyclones of the New York-Penn League, are at it again. The team will host a “Saved by the Bell” night on Wednesday, June 24.

Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect:

  • Pre-game “Sprain” Dancing Competition
  • A.C. Slater’s Sitting Backwards Musical Chairs
  • I’m So Excited Fan Cam
  • Mr. Tuttle’s Learner’s Permit On-Field Obstacle Course
  • Screech Powers Chess Tournament on the Concourse Level
  • Kiss Cam complete with the usual “WOOOOOOOOOOOW” sounds since our game will also be taped in front of a live studio audience
  • Anyone named Johnny Dakota is banned from the ballpark because we “Say Nope to Dope”
  • Oldest Cell Phone in the Ballpark Competition
  • Friendship bracelet station on the concourse…singing “Friends Forever” will be optional.
  • Zack Morris TIMEOUT Race Around the Bases – kids will race around the bases, but most stop in their tracks every time they hear TIMEOUT.
  • After the game, fans with perms or wearing stonewashed jeans will be allowed to run the bases.

The players (most of whom probably weren’t born when the show went off the air) will also wear special “Saved by the Bell” themed jerseys. No word on if the opposing team will wear Valley High uniforms, but that would be cool. Click here for more details and ticket information, preppy.

I couldn’t make this post without including the video from the  “Saved by the Bell” reunion on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on NBC last night. As a 90s kid, I thought it was pretty awesome:
