Diamonds aren’t just a girl’s best friend… they’re beloved by men as well, especially when they’re of the baseball variety.

On Monday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF) hosted its Fourth Annual Blue Diamond Gala, a star-studded evening that featured a performance by multi-award winning, platinum-selling singer-songwriter John Legend. Comedians Arsenio Hall and George Lopez emceed the evening, which raised over $2.2 million and was attended by 1,700 guests.
