Something of Shea that wasn't Sold

Well, it's true. Shea's "Home Run" apple has indeed made the move over to the new ballpark. It apparently will be in a public open area behind the bullpens but it will no longer rise on home runs.

So says Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post and Steve Popper of The (NJ) Record. has more.

Personally, I didn't think the nearly 30-year-old apple would last much longer - new ballpark or not.

Update: WPIX's blog has a video of the moving of the old apple into Citi Field and getting it "dressed" up for display. Thanks to CitiField of Dreams posted this on a tip from a reader.
