Chris Sutter, son of Los Angeles Kings coach Darryl Sutter, proved again why he is a superstar in Southern California.

Sutter spent Friday mingling with baseball legends at the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim game against the Houston Astros at Angel Stadium as a guest of Angels designated hitter Albert Pujols. Sutter left the game with a signed bat from Pujols and a personalized Angels jersey, and made sure Pujols received a Kings jersey of his own.

American League All-Star Mike Trout and Angels manager Mike Scioscia took time to hang out with Sutter on the field before the game. Sutter met Angels legend and Baseball Hall of Famer Rod Carew during the game, which the Angels won 7-1.

Sutter's trip to Angel Stadium capped a whirlwind week in the spotlight for him. On Wednesday, he appeared on the Kings Dance Cam for the first time this season during the Kings preseason game against the Anaheim Ducks at Staples Center, debuting a new shirt that featured his likeness.
