Kobe Bryant hits home run in celebrity softball game

Finally, Kobe Bryant put on a uniform. He played in a game. And he dazzled the crowd watching his every move.

It remains far too early to write Bryant’s comeback after appearing in only six games last season amid overlapping injuries to his left Achilles tendon and left knee. But it’s not too early for Lakers fans to still feel excited about Bryant, who nailed a home run on Sunday in Richard Sherman’s celebrity softball game in Seattle.
