Adrian Gonzalez autographed poster of him in Mickey Mouse ears riding Dumbo

Adrian Gonzalez is having a lot of fun with this whole Mickey Mouse thing.

To refresh your memory, St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright said after Game 3 of the NLCS that Gonzalez was doing some “Mickey Mouse stuff” on the bases after hitting an RBI double to put the Los Angeles Dodgers up 1-0. Gonzalez denied doing anything, but he made light of the whole thing by flashing Mickey Mouse ears after hitting a home run in Game 5.

Prior to Game 6 of the series in St. Louis, Cardinals fan Marty Prather, who is known as “sign guy”, showed off a poster he made of Gonzalez in Mickey Mouse ears and riding the Disneyland Dumbo flying ride. Gonzalez apparently liked the poster, because he signed it and gave a thumbs up:

Prather was hanging out by the dugout during batting practice, which must be how he got the players’ attention.

He also had another Mickey Mouse-related prop. Molly Knight shared a photo of Prather with a Mickey Mouse doll in a noose:

As an interesting twist, I just realized that there is more to this story than you would think. Gonzalez is actually a big Mickey Mouse fan. When he was first traded to Los Angeles from Boston, he showed up for his press conference along with Josh Beckett and Nick Punto wearing a Mickey Mouse shirt:

Gonzo’s Mickey Mouse roots run deep!
