Natalia, wearing the number 24 uniform her father Kobe wore during his lifetime, is 20 years old and currently attending the University of Southern California.
Dodgers catcher Mookie Betts, who received Natalia’s first pitch, wore Bryant’s LA Lakers uniform over his own.
Bryant’s wife Vanessa, Bryant’s daughters Bianca and Caffrey, and Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka were present for the ceremonial first pitch.
Bryant married in 2001 and had four daughters, including his first daughter, Natalia, in 2003, his second daughter, Gianna in 2006, Bianca in 2016, and Capri in 2019.
Gianna passed away in a helicopter accident along with Bryant in 2020.
During the first pitch that day, players from both teams lined up at first and third base, and Dodgers fans also chanted “Kobe.”
