The Los Angeles Dodgers paid tribute to Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna at Dodger Stadium on Sunday, August 23, on what would have been Kobe’s 42nd birthday.
Players wore Kobe’s No 24 and No 8 Lakers jerseys during a ceremony ahead of their game against the Colorado Rockies.
Commentator Vin Scully narrated a memorial video. Shortly before the first pitch, a clip of Kobe announcing “It’s time for Dodger baseball” was played, the LA Times said.
