Brandon McCarthy Invites Comedian Jerry Seinfeld to Athletics Clubhouse Via Twitter

It was almost a clash of comedic titans.

On Saturday, Athletics pitcher Brandon McCarthy tweeted comedian Jerry Seinfeld and invited him to watch the A's take on the Tigers at Comerica Park.

Seinfeld was in town –– actually across the street from the stadium –– performing a show. Unfortunately for McCarthy and the Athletics, Seinfeld didn't receive the message until Sunday, and by then, it was too late.

Although Seinfeld missed the opportunity to visit Oakland's clubhouse, he still gave the A's a vote of support.

Seinfeld's appearance could've sparked the Athletics that night, considering the Tigers are leading the best-of-five series, 2-0.
