March Madness is reaching its end, which means one thing: Baseball season begins!

Opening day is a cherished American tradition. There’s almost nothing better than the smell of fresh-cut grass and the crack of the bat, which both signal that spring is finally here.

Well, there is one thing better: staying in and watching movies and TV &#8212 especially if you’re watching MTV’s “Off the Bat From the MLB Fan Cave,” premiering April 1. But don’t worry: There’s no need to miss out on the thrill of seeing your favorite baseball players. That’s due to the second-best American tradition: cameos by famous athletes.

We’ve compiled 11 of the best cameos by baseball players on TV and film. So stay in, lean back, and watch your favorite baseball players pop up in movies and shows where you would least expect them.

Keith Hernandez In “Seinfeld”
While most cameos are one-and-done, Keith Hernandez’s role on “Seinfeld” ups the ante, as he’s given an entire arc. Not only does he become best friends with Jerry and date Elaine, but he is part of a long-standing feud with Kramer and Newman, who think he spit on them during a game, resulting in a JFK-conspiracy-theory parody that’s as great as anything ever. “There must have been a second spitter!”
