During the sixth inning of Saturday night's NLCS Game 1, Travis d'Arnaud celebrated the heart of apple season in New York by blasting a solo homer directly at the Citi Field Home Run Apple, as if to summon its celebratory bob, or in an attempt to juice the apple for enough cider to fill the Long Island Sound.


It was a literal dinger.
