How’s this for an amazing tribute!?!?
L.A. Angels outfielder Brian Goodwin threw on custom cleats to honor Kobe Bryant and Nipsey Hussle for his game Wednesday … and then he balled out of his mind at the plate!!!
29-year-old Goodwin — who’s often publicly spoken about his love for the Mamba and Nipsey — pulled out the fresh Under Armour kicks for the Halos’ home matchup against the Mariners.
The spikes were pretty amazing … one was all yellow and featured depictions of Kobe, his old jersey #8, and the L.A. Lakers logo.
The other, meanwhile, was baby blue with a black and white checkerboard … and also featured a picture of Nipsey and a cursive “Crenshaw.”
But, when Goodwin took the diamond in the cleats … he took the tribute a step further, going 2-for-4 at the dish with a double, a home run and 3 RBIs!
The dinger was particularly impressive … it traveled well over 400 feet — and Goodwin made sure he showed off the cleats as he emphatically stepped on home plate.
The Angels ended up losing the game (their bullpen is atrocious) … but, hey, Goodwin sure as hell looked good!!
