If you are a fan of the show “Seinfeld,” then you certainly know Larry Thomas.

He’s the actor who played the “Soup Nazi,” dispensing delicious soup with an authoritative ladle. He’s one of the iconic characters to appear on the show. And in July, he’ll be at a home game of the Royals’ Class A team in Wilmington, Del.

The Wilmington Blue Rocks are planning a “Seinfeld night:”

Rocky is the mascot in Wilmington, so the Rocky fusilli doll should also ring a bell with fans of the show.

Here are some of the Soup Nazi’s best moments on the show:

Royals mascot Sluggerrrr surprised a doctor and a nurse at Children's Mercy Hospital on Thursday with a special Valentine's Day message of love from their husbands. Sluggerrr will be delivering his Sluggerrrr Grams around town through Sunday.
