Kobe Bryant hit a home run and fell for the hidden ball trick in a charity softball game

When he's not knocking down fadeaway jumpers and dropping 81 points on teams, Kobe Bryant is apparently working on his swing in the cages and/or marveling at his own athletic ability because the dude can play some softball, too. He's no Jordan (jokes, people), but Bryant put on a bit of a show at Richard Sherman's charity softball game. Yes, that Richard Sherman.

A bunch of Seattle Seahawks and some NBA stars turned out for the event, held at Safeco Field on Sunday. Kobe went yard, showing off that power ... 

But fell for the hidden ball trick and was tagged out by Seahawks quarterback (and Rangers second baseman, kind of) Russell Wilson. 

The thrill of victory ... the agony of defeat.
