Cory Monteith's (Finn) Glee co-stars are grappling with his surprising death and paying their respects to him in any way they can.

Chord Overstreet (Sam) competed int in the Taco Bell All-Star Legends and Celebrity softball game on July 14 in NYC. The Glee star hit a home run during the course of the game, and the Daily Mail reports that he dedicated the moment to Cory.

Chord — who was also in the Big Apple for a Dolce & Gabbana advertising shoot on July 13 — kept his commitment to appear in the star-studded softball game, despite the game coming less than 24 hours after news of Cory’s death was announced.

Even with his home run, Chord’s team lost the game, 8-5. Also playing in the game were such famous faces as Alyssa Milano, comedian George Lopez, singer Ashanti, and Kevin James, who was named the co-MVP of the game.

We’re proud of Chord for excelling in the game, even though Cory’s death must have been weighing heavily on him. And it’s so sweet that Chord dedicated the hit to Cory! Chord’s involvement in the game of course brings up memories for us of the Sam and Finn bonding together in the gym over their mutual love of athletics.

Chord has yet to write anything about Cory on Twitter, but numerous Glee stars have used their Twitter pages to pay tribute to him. We miss you, Cory!
