Yesterday was LA Kings Night at Dodger Stadium and social media is filled with photos celebrating the occasion. As you can see in the photos above and below, five Kings players were on hand: wingers Kyle Clifford and Tyler Toffoli, centerman Jeff Carter and defensemen Matt Greene and Alec Martinez.
They came out early to the Stadium for some batting practice and shagged some balls in the outfield.

And here's Matt Greene taking his turn at the plate, via the @LAKings on twitter:
As you may know, Greene is a huge Dodger fan. He can often be seen sporting a LA Dodger cap and even appeared in full Dodger regalia one summer afternoon when the Kings brought along the Stanley Cup to the stadium in 2012. Check out my original post on that here. If memory serves me right, Greene hung out in the dugout during the game.
And of course, Bailey was there to greet the fans.

Check out their ceremonial first pitch below. I think I'll take the fact that they all threw strike as an omen. The LA Kings will be back stronger than ever this upcoming season.
