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.
. @jerryseinfeld I left your name on the pass list if you'd like to visit the A's clubhouse after your show. Looking forward to meeting you!

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.
@bmccarthy32 Just got your this. Thanks. Would love to next chance there is.Go A's.

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