Orlando sports stars new and old visited victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in the hospital on Monday.

Earlier this month, Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, was the scene of the worst terror attack in America since Sept. 11. 49 were killed and many were sent to the hospital, where they were greeted by the likes of Kaka, Shaquille O’Neal and Johnny Damon on Monday.

All have ties to the city—Kaka currently plays for Orlando City SC, O’Neal was drafted by the Magic, playing in Orlando from 1992–96, and Damon grew up in the city, where he played his high school baseball.
