Long Description:
Between 1980 and 2007, this large red piece of fruit popped out of its hat everytime a New York Met hit a home run at Shea Stadium.

The icon was so important to Mets fans that when the plans for Citifield didn't include a Home Run Apple there was an uproar. Eventually, a petition and loud voices were enough to encourage stadium designers to include a new Home Run Apple.

The original sits here, in a prominent location, right in front of the main gates into Citifield.
