Roger McDowell gets $13.52 when his Seinfeld episode reruns

Wednesday February 25th, 2015

Roger McDowell is currently the pitching coach for the Atlanta Braves, but before he held that role he was a reliever for the New York Mets, which led to his guest appearance on one the most famous episodes of Seinfeld, "The Boyfriend." 

In the two-part episode Kramer and Newman accuse Mets first baseman Keith Hernandez of spitting on them after a game at Shea Stadium, but it is later revealed it was actually an angry McDowell.

Despite the pitcher's brief appearance, he told an Atlanta radio show he makes $13.52 every time it airs.

With royalties like that, who needs a paycheck?
