Ducks Win The Stanley Cup

The Anaheim Ducks is the first NHL team on the West Coast to win the Stanley Cup. Unlike the other trophies awarded to the champions of the other major sports, the Cup is a perpetual trophy kept by the winning hockey team until the next season's champion is crowned. It is also the only trophy in professional sports that has the name of the winning players, coaches, management, and club staff engraved upon it. The trophy was donated by Lord Stanley of Preston, then Governor General of Canada, in 1892.
What are the names of the other major professional sports championship trophy?
What is the Claret Jug?
The Stanley Cup visited Angels Stadium recently.
