WATCH: Dodger Stadium Reacts to Same-Sex Couple on Kiss Cam

WATCH: Dodger Stadium Reacts to Same-Sex Couple on Kiss Cam

The Los Angeles Dodgers' 6-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks wasn't the only thing that had Dodger Stadium cheering Saturday — a same-sex couple shared a smooch during the Kiss Cam that had the crowd roaring. 

About 30 seconds after the Kiss Cam began scanning the crowd in the middle of the fourth inning, it settled on a pair of men — donning Dodger gear, of course — who seemed all too happy to share the love. After the couple share a kiss and and give a thumbs-up, the crowd of more than 43,000 people can be heard erupting in cheers. In fact, the same-sex kiss garnered the most enthusiastic response of the entire Kiss Cam segment. 

The YouTube user who posted the video, Joven Calloway, posited that Saturday's smooch was the first same-sex kiss on the Jumbotron at Dodger Stadium, but it's unclear if that's true — especially because the Dodgers have since 2013 hosted an annual LGBT Night Out that spotlights out athletes, guests, and fans. 

No word on the identities of the men at the center of the celebration, but we're just glad to see they took to heart the words "Take me out to the ballgame!"

Watch the Kiss Cam below, with the same-sex kiss starting at the 28-second mark.
