Sometimes Major League Baseball does things like create 35 giant apples decorated in the colors and theme of the different teams in its league to help promote the Mid Summer Classic. With the 2013 All-Star Game taking place in New York, they went with a Big Apple theme. Literally.
Here’s what MLB has to say about it:
The 35 MLB-themed All-Star Apple statues, each six feet tall and weighing more than 350 pounds, will appear at various New York locations as a dramatic harbinger of the 84th Midsummer Classic, to be played at Citi Field on July 16. Citi Field, home of the host Mets, is one of the notable locations for the statues, along with such landmarks as Grand Central Terminal, the Intrepid Museum and the New York Public Library.
And other landmarks such as a Party City store. Yep, the Phillies apple is apparently at a Party City based on the amazing video you can watch by clicking the link below.
You can get your very own replica for just about 20 bucks! Check it:
Probably best used to throw at something.
