Yasiel Puig Challenges Kobe Bryant To A Game Of 1-on-1

Kobe Bryant was seen in attendance in Game 4 when the Los Angeles Dodgers took on the Boston Red Sox. In the bottom of the 6th inning in Game 4, Yasiel Puig blasted a home run to extend the Dodgers lead to 4-0 before they eventually dropped game 4. 

Yesterday, Yasiel Puig sent out his appreciate for Kobe and the impact that he had on his life growing up and even a little challenge to Kobe. 

One of my best memories of the 2018 season with one of my idols. @kobebryant you still rembmer what I asked you at the Laker game the other night? I hit that one out of the park bc i remembered your answer. Thanks for the challenge and priceless inspiration. Now let's play 1 on 1. 

Kobe quickly saw his message on Twitter and responded:

Haha my man! It was a moment my family and I will remember forever. Right next to me is Vanessa recording the hit with her cell directly behind you and next to her is Natalia celebrating.   Amazing moment!! 1 on 1 it is.

Puig right after he hit his home run looked over at Kobe and flexed his muscles to tell him he got his message loud and clear.
