Last night, the L.A. Dodgers faced the Atlanta Braves but the sudden passing of Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington was felt throughout the stadium.
Bennington died in a reported suicide yesterday at the age of 41, and the baseball team paid tribute in a variety of ways. The stadium’s organist played Linkin Park’s “Numb” in retro baseball fashion. Pitcher Brandon McCarthy selected LP material as his walk-on music and team members warmed up listening to Bennington’s music, too.
