Baseball fans love to see home runs whether its the distance of the shot or the impact of the game. There have been many iconic home runs in history and, yes, even the New York Mets have some.

There have been some big moments in the New York Mets history. Many have included the famous apple in center field rising up shortly after.

When a Mets player puts that ball over the wall and the apple comes up, the crowd is in a frenzy. It could be a walk-off to win the game, a game-tying or lead-changing home run or just a record-breaking shot. Whatever it is Mets fans erupted at Shea or Citi Field.

To name a few of the big-time home runs of recent one was the Asdrubal Cabrera walk-off in 2016 against the Phillies to complete the late-inning comeback. Another was the Carlos Beltran walk-off against the Phillies in 2006 to end a 16-inning marathon.

Let us not forget about the pitchers who rake for the Mets. Back in May of 2016 Noah Syndergaard became the first pitcher in nine years to hit two home runs in one game as he went deep twice at Dodger Stadium. In July of the same season, Matt Harvey homered against the Arizona Diamondbacks becoming the second Mets pitcher to go deep that season.

All these were fun home runs for the Mets and their fans but let us look into a few other ones. Ones that we can label as iconic moments in the history of the New York Mets.
