Home Run Apple Is Back!February 6, 2009
Below is video courtesy of SNY via MetsBlog.com of the new Homerun Apple being installed at CitiField.
Over the past year there has been a lot of debate amongst Mets fans as to whether or not the Homerun Apple should make the trip over to CitiField. There is even a Save The Apple Website for those who want to express their thoughts on keeping the Apple.
I for one am glad the Homerun Apple will be at CitiField. There isn’t much symbolism us Mets fans can take away from Shea Stadium to carry with us over CitiField and I think the Apple is something to hold onto. I have to admit, I am even more happy that the Mets have decided to install a brand new Homerun Apple. If the old Apple was installed, my opinion might be different…..
