The Los Angeles Kings were celebrated by their baseball brethren Friday when the Los Angeles Dodgers held Kings Night at Dodger Stadium.

Kings forwards Tyler Toffoli, Trevor Lewis and Kyle Clifford, and defenseman Brayden McNabb, took batting practice and threw out ceremonial first pitches before the Dodgers played the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Bailey, the Kings' mascot, donned a Dodgers-themed hockey jersey, and members of the Kings ice crew joined the players at the game. Clifford's 3-year-old son Brody joined in the first-pitch festivities, but Toffoli stole the show during his pregame swings in the batting cage, hitting a home run.

Toffoli's trip to Dodger Stadium was his second of the week; he participated alongside Kings captain Anze Kopitar and other celebrities for Ping Pong for Purpose on Thursday, a charity table tennis tournament put on by Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw.

Kopitar and his teammate, actor Eric Stonestreet, were eliminated in the first round, a fact that undoubtedly bugged the Kings forward and actor/comedian Will Ferrell. Before the table tennis started, Ferrell crashed a television interview with Kopitar and Toffoli and admitted he wanted to be Kopitar's teammate for the event.
