Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Lorenzo Cain made his first return to Kauffman Stadium since his playing days with the Kansas City Royals. He received a standing ovation in the first inning, then a rousing cheer after a home run.

If he didn't know it before Tuesday night, Lorenzo Cain knows it now. He is loved by Kansas City.

Cain, who signed with the Milwaukee Brewers in the offseason, returned to Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday and received no fewer than four standing ovations.

There was one when he came on the field before the game, another when his name was announced as part of the lineup, a third when he stepped to the plate (Salvador Perez hugged him, too) and another when Cain returned to the dugout after grounding out to first.

Brewers fans watching the game on television were impressed with the reaction from the Royals fans, and many shared their thoughts on Twitter.

The Royals tweeted a video of the moment when Cain came to the plate for the first time:

Here is a sample of what Brewers fans were saying:
