CHICAGO -- The statue outside Wrigley Field of legendary Chicago Cubs broadcaster Harry Caray has been vandalized.

Cubs spokesman Peter Chase says most of the white spray paint that appeared on Sunday has been removed. The graffiti said "Sox" and a second, illegible word. Chase says the team is trying to find out any details about the defacement.

It's not the first time the bronze statue has been vandalized. Chicago police removed a dead goat carcass found hanging around it in October 2007.

The statue previously was at Sheffield Avenue and Addison Street. But it was moved to make room for a new statue of Cubs Hall of Famer Billy Williams. Now the Harry Caray statue is outside the entrance to Wrigley Field's bleachers. It was rededicated at the spot in September.
