David Letterman talked baseball with Jerry Seinfeld on a recent episode of Letterman’s Netflix show. Letterman told Seinfeld he was shocked and puzzled when Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto turned away from the field and thanked him for coming to the game.
“He’s standing there, the game’s in progress, he’s got the weighted bat and it’s like be sure and get your coat, thanks for coming over, we had a lovely time …”
Seinfeld: “It’s because it’s you!”
Letterman: “It’s not because it’s me …”
Seinfeld replied, “You think he goes down the first base line shaking hands? You’re Dave Letterman, you idiot.”
