Perhaps the memorable change was the addition of the top hat. While Comiskey had the exploding scoreboard and the Houston Astros had their own version complete with a war cannon run by General Admission (that was his name), the Mets had a top hat. When a Mets player hit a home run a flashing red apple pops out of the top of the hat to celebrate the feat. When Darryl Strawberry left the Mets, he returned to Shea in a Yankees uniform during interleague play. He hit a home run and the apple popped out only 1/2 way and then sunk back down to the delight of the crowd.
