Seinfeld said Paul O’Neill was the best actor out of all the baseball players to appear on the show because of the way he delivered his lines and how he responded to his scene partner, according to an interview he did in the Rich Iron Show.” O’Neill is a 5-time All-Star and the right fielder has won 5 World Series during his career. O’Neill played for the Yankees from 1993-2001, which was the heyday of the television series.” Seinfeld”. So O’Neill was asked to play a guest star, and he had a memorable scene in the Season 7 episode entitled “The Wink”. Kramer sneaks into the Yankees clubhouse because he wants a favor from O ‘Neill needs: He promised a sick kid that O’Neill would hit not one, but two home runs for him.
O’Neill gets pretty defensive when expected to stop two things in a single game, but Kramer insists Yankees legend Babe Ruth could have done it. “He wasn’t stupid enough to promise two,” O’Neill argued. It’s a hilariously memorable scene, but O’Neill realized his Yankee status got him the gig. “Things like that only happen when you’re part of the New York Yankees,” O’Neill said in an interview on The Rich Eisen Show. And it only took a few takes to finish. “Obviously I became a huge fan of the show after watching the episode,” O’Neill continued. After that, O’Neill had to hurry because the Yankees were playing the California Angels later that night.
