People across the world have always compared Kobe Bryant to Michael Jordan. Now, they have another reason as Kobe showed off his baseball skills last night.
At Richard Sherman’s Celebrity Softball Game last night, Bryant went yard. Check out the video below via lakersworld16‘s instagram:
There were some fences in front of the main walls at Safeco Field, but Bryant’s feat is still impressive. Also important to note that Bryant was hitting left-handed, which is something very few people probably knew.
For Bryant, the home run in the game was make-up for his performance in the home run derby:
I WAS in the home run derby @CountOn24 and was AWFUL! Not one homer! My kids looked mortified ha had to redeem myself when the game started

Bryant may not have a future career in baseball, but at least he will have his moment in the spotlight with his performance in Seattle.
