All Star Mouse Hunting From the O.C to L.A., Part 1, The NL East

With the All-Star break just around the corner comes all the hoopla that surrounds this Mid-Summer Night classic. Each year, the host city spreads out baseball-themed statues for fans to search, be it a parade of statues in New York City that also featured scattered Big Apples to All-Star boots Deep In The Heart of Texas. The themed statues we’re usually bought by the MLB clubs after the All-Star game and put on display in their respective yards…

5 years ago, when the Angels hosted the All-Star game, Mickey Mouse themed statues we’re spread throughout Orange County, Los Angeles and all the way to Rancho Cucamonga. MLB conducted a scavenger hunt contest for those crazy enough ( Including yours truly ) to want to go through such effort to snap a selfie of yourself next to all 36 of these baseball themed Mickeys. It was a grueling and time consuming experience, but I did manage to pull off the feat, While it may have been grueling, it was a fun experience and if I had the Samsung Galaxy then, it certainly would have been a lot easier to pull off. Regardless, I had a great time doing the scavenger hunt and met a lot of nice people along the way, from well-wishers offering to take my pic to business owners and employees already knowing I was doing the scavenger hunt ( I had one person tell me that he knew I wasn’t a tourist because I was dressed in my Dodger garb and wasn’t getting all giddy next to The Mouse…LOL )

Today I feature the NL East themed Mickeys, 5 of the 36 during what I called at the time, my ” Hidden Mickey ” search…
