Sporting Kansas City brought Kauffman Stadium its first trophy since the 1980s on Tuesday night, displaying the recently won U.S. Open Cup trophy before the Kansas City Royals took on the Oakland Athletics.

Sporting forwards Teal Bunbury and Kei Kamara threw out the first pitch for the game with goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen and defender Chance Myers catching.
