Even though they are two different sports, baseball is celebrating and honoring the last game of Kobe Bryant's career. Kobe is set and ready to play the final game of his NBA career in about fifteen minutes.
Matt Kemp wore these batting gloves for today's game against the Phillies despite his back number being 27. Kemp became really close to Kobe when he used to play for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He said he admired Kobe for his confidence and said all big leaguers should be confident like Kobe.
And here is a fairly younger Los Angeles superstar, Mike Trout who rocked these cleats for Mamba Day.
Even though they may be playing in different sports, it's good to see these athletes honor a living legend.
