Many beers were thrown Wednesday during the Red Sox World Series victory parade. And one can in particular did damage (hashtag) to a special piece of hardware.

The Red Sox confirmed that the World Series trophy riding along in the duck boat with Mookie Betts, who was reportedly bombarded by a constant onslaught on soaring beers, was slightly damaged after it was hit by a full, unopened can. The trophy could be seen after the incident with several of its 30 gold-plated flags bent out of shape.

Korey O’Brien, a producer for 7News, obtained and posted footage of the exact moment it was hit Wednesday afternoon.

WMUR, the Manchester, New Hampshire-based news station, also captured raw video of the moment of impact.

Zineb Curran, a spokeswoman for the Red Sox, told Boston.com that the damage was “minimal” and the trophy should be “easily repaired.”

“Not a big deal,” she said.
