Mickey Mouse All Star Game Statues

It was announced today that there are going to be MLB themed Mickey Mouse statues placed around Southern California in celebration of the 2010 All Star Game! The statues will be appearing at different So. Cal. landmarks during the days leading up to the game on July 13th at Angel Stadium. MLB is selling small collectible statuettes that are replicas of these 7 1/2 foot statues on their website. There are thirty-six variations of them!

These are available on

In addition to these statuettes, next month there will also be a variety of MLB Disney merchandise. The All Star Game is taking place so close to Disneyland that it isn't surprising that MLB would team up with Disney to celebrate the event. Stephen Teglas, vice president and general manager of Fashion & Home North America at Disney Consumer Products was quoted on

"Baseball and Mickey Mouse really connect families, and with the All-Star Game being in our backyard this year, it made perfect sense to combine the magic of Disney with America's favorite pastime... We look forward to delighting fans of both brands with our unique products and collectibles."

The locations of where the full sized Mickey statues will be found has not been released. The placement of them around So. Cal. carries on a recent All Star tradition where the host city places MLB themed statues around the area. For example, there were Statue of Liberty models around New York and cowboy boot statues in Dallas when they hosted the game. St. Louis had decorated replicas of their Arch around their city last year when they hosted.

The statuettes are currently available on but eventually will also be available at, Walgreens, and some other locations.

So for all you So. Cal. residents, keep an eye out for those All Star Mickeys!
