The World Series trophy was reportedly damaged during the Boston Red Sox championship celebration this afternoon.

The trophy reportedly took a "direct hit" from a beer can that was thrown onto one of Boston's duck boats and got bent out of shape.

Several beers were thrown at the parade today, with one woman reportedly needing stitches after getting hit.

NESN.com had more details on the World Series trophy getting damaged:

Chronicle news anchor Anthony Everett, who witnessed the incident, said the trophy was on the duck boat carrying Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts, utilityman Tzu-Wei Lin, hitting coach Tim Hyers and assistant hitting coach Andy Barkett, among others. “

The World Series trophy took a direct hit,” Everett told WCVB-TV. “It got bent out of shape. They brought it back down into the truck and it looked like they fixed it pretty well, but there’s going to be some repairs involved with at least one of the World Series trophies.”

Thankfully for Boston, the Red Sox have earned more than one World Series trophy this century.
