Sports fans have not gotten to see much of Kobe Bryant over the last year thanks to a series of injuries that kept him off the basketball court, but the Los Angeles Lakers star showed some flashes of dominance in a new arena over the weekend at Richard Sherman's charity softball game.

Bryant's lefty smash was aided by a shortened fence at Seattle's Safeco field, but that did not stop the Black Mamba from heading to Twitter to celebrate and thank manager Lawyer Milloy while taking a shot at legendary Lakers' coach and current Knicks' president Phil Jackson.

The Associated Press reports over 22,000 came out to the ballpark to see stars like Bryant as well as Russell Wilson, Nate Robinson and Macklemore, and to support Sherman's Blanket Coverage charity, which provides children with clothes and school supplies.
