Someone doesn't like the Boston Red Sox

The All-Star Game celebration includes a collection of seven-foot-high Mickey Mouse statues, displayed all over Southern California, individually decorated with the logo and colors of one of the major league teams.

The Mickey Mouse dressed up in Boston Red Sox gear? That statue, on display at the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana, has been vandalized and has been removed for repairs.

"There is a crack in one of the arms and some damage to the baseball Mickey is holding," Major League Baseball spokesman Matt Bourne told the Orange County Register.

Retaliation alert: The statue of Mickey Mouse dressed in New York Yankees gear is on display at the ESPN Zone at LA Live.
