The long-awaited moment finally arrived on Wednesday night.

Jarrod Dyson, who was traded by the Royals to the Seattle Mariners in January, stood at first base after drawing a second-inning walk. Behind the plate was Salvador Perez, Dyson’s former teammate.

It was time for Mr. Zoombya vs. the Man With Four Gold Gloves.

Dyson won this round as he stole second. What happened next made Royals fans smile. Dyson sneaked a look back at Perez, who had a broad smile on his face. And Perez did a little rev-the-cycle move that Dyson made famous in Kansas City.

Take a look at this video from Twitter user Steve McCleary:

Fans loved it.

Former Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson caught up with his old team on Monday at Safeco Field.
