Their inspiration is gone, and neighbors can't understand why it happened.
Black paint now covers a mural of the hall of fame Puerto Rican baseball player Roberto Clemente. He is a symbol of pride and success for many, especially for the Azalea Park Little League. The mural was created in 2011.
"It's very shocking," said Felix Martin. "It was surprising. I live right across the street. I didn't see anything and to hear it from you guys first, we were like, 'Really?' And we walked outside, and there it was, painted over."
The Azalea Park Elementary School principal notified police about the vandalism. The Orange County School District owns the baseball field but not the concession stand where the mural was painted. No vandalism charges have been filed.
"I hope they do catch the guys and make them pay for it, so it can get painted over again. It was a nice addition to the community," said Martin.
