The music world is still coming to terms with the tragic death of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington at the age of 41 yesterday.

Tributes have poured in from around the globe to a man who many see as a voice of the generation who grew up in the 2000s. 

A lovely video has emerged of one such musical tribute from an unlikely venue. Anyone who has ever been to a baseball game in the States will know that an organist is as much part of the action as a hot dog or an oversized beer. 

Their job is generally to keep the fans entertained by playing some musical numbers during breaks in play and Los Angeles Dodgers organist Dieter Ruehle came up with a nice gesture for Chester at a game yesterday by breaking into a rendition of 'Numb', one of the band's most well-known hits.

We're sure baseball and Linkin Park fans alike will agree it was a fitting tribute.
