MLB Seinfeld Festivus: The Pole

Festivus cannot conclude without the pole, so there’s no better time to bring back Tal’s Hill than for Festivus.

It’s a “Festivus miracle” that no MLB outfielder met their dire end, but it was quite the adventure for 16 seasons.

The pole is long gone and the hill leveled to add more seats in the stands, but the “8th wonder of the world” is truly missed.

In Seinfeld:

"The Festivus Pole is the ultimate symbol of an anti-Christmas holiday, it is plain looking, unencumbered by branches and decorations, and it is relatively inexpensive."

Now that we’ve aired our grievances, ate our Festivus meal, competed in the feats of strength, and brought back Tal’s Hill for the pole, Festivus can now conclude.

Festivus is our heritage and part of who we are, and now, it’s part of the MLB culture thanks to us. Embrace this holiday, those of you who are fed up with the fluff of the other holidays or need a place to vent about your favorite — or most hated MLB team.
