Baseball agent Scott Boras is fulfilling Kobe Bryant's wish for Alexis Altobelli, the 16-year-old surviving daughter of late Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli.
Boras told Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times that he plans to create an internship for Alexis, who lost her father, mother, and younger sister in the helicopter crash that also claimed the life of Bryant and his daughter Gianna on Jan. 26.
During Monday's public memorial service for the Bryants, Los Angeles Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka revealed the NBA legend texted him moments before the crash asking for help getting in touch with a baseball agent in order to recommend Alexis for an internship.
"Kobe's last human act was heroic," Pelinka said. "He wanted to use his platform to bless and shape a young girl's future."
As part of her internship at Boras Corporation, Alexis will be able to rotate through the company's marketing, baseball operations, sports science, and office administration departments, among others.
