Fans at Dodger Stadium were treated to a special moment Wednesday evening before the first pitch of the Dodgers-Angels game when the Kings brought the Stanley Cup onto the field.

The Kings players trotted the Stanley Cup — the first in the franchise’s 45-year history — to the pitcher’s mound and the Dodgers and Angels joined them on the field for a photo opportunity.

Each member of the Cup champions threw out a first pitch to a member of the Dodgers.

Captain Dustin Brown carried the 35-pound Stanley Cup to home plate following the ceremonial first pitches, where even the umpires took in a photo with the trophy.

The crowd, with mixed allegiances to the Dodgers and Angels, roared in unison when the Stanley Cup was presented.
