The Old Home Run Apple

Shea Stadium home run apple

You can see the front of the old Shea Stadium home run apple by entering through the Jackie Robinson Rotunda and waiting on line to take a picture. I didn’t have the patience to wait on line so I took this shot from above. As you can see, it’s shoved over in a corner, as if it were in a staging area. My guess is that on bulk waste garbage night, Jeff Wilpon will push it out to the curb.

In the next photo, you’ll see Bernie Madoff’s new seat!
