The Los Angeles Dodgers should have been hosting the NL West rival Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night. Instead, there's been no baseball because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, despite Dodger Stadium not hosting baseball, that didn't stop the stadium from being lit up on Wednesday night in honor of George Floyd. The 46-year-old Floyd was killed while in police custody last week after an office held a knee to his neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds before EMT's arrived.
Across Los Angeles, families were asked to shine lights for eight minutes and 46 seconds at 9:00PM PT in Floyd's honor. The Dodgers organization did the same, turning the lights on at Dodger Stadium for exactly 8 minutes and 46 seconds.
NBC LA had a helicopter flying over Chavez Ravine and captured the whole thing in the video above.
On Monday, the Dodgers were among several professional sports teams in Los Angeles to issue a statement following Floyd's death.
