The NEW YORK CONVENTION AND VISITORS BUREAU wants to show the hour-long series finale of NBC's "SEINFELD" on the jumbotron at Yankee Stadium following the Rangers-Yankees game on May 14, according to Richard Sandomir of the N.Y. TIMES. Yankees General Counsel LONN TROST said that the team's marketing department "was investigating the feasibility of getting the rights to show the episode on tape." NBC West Coast President DON OHLMEYER said that he "doubted the plan could succeed." Ohlmeyer: "You'd be playing it in front of a paying audience in an arena. That's not what the rights are for" (N.Y. TIMES, 4/2). THE SPITTER RETURNS? In N.Y., Neal Travis reports that former Mets 1B KEITH HERNANDEZ will appear in the "Seinfeld" finale. Hernandez previously appeared in "one of the most watched episodes in the show's history" (N.Y. POST, 4/2).
