It finally happened. When we needed the Mets Home Run Apple to rise, it failed. It stayed hidden away in it’s home.
During the Mets and Reds game today, it was decided to make the Apple rise during the seventh inning stretch. It was a good omen. Good call to do it!

Only the Mets, ladies and gentleman. Only the Mets!
