The family tributes for the late Robin Williams continued this weekend when his three children honored their father by throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at Game 5 of the World Series in San Francisco.
Zak Williams, the Oscar-winning actor’s eldest son, delivered the first pitch to Robin’s dear friend Billy Crystal to start Sunday night’s game between the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals.
Also at the pitcher’s mound were Zak’s two younger siblings, Zelda Williams, 25, and Cody Williams, 23. Each of the comedian’s children donned a Giants jersey with the name “Williams” across the back.
After throwing out the pitch, Zak, 31, raised both arms into the air before embracing Billy on the field while a special tribute for Robin — featuring highlights of his films and photos of his many visits to San Francisco’s AT&T park — played on the scoreboard in the background.
“We are honored to be here in support of the tribute to our father, someone who loved his hometown and especially the Giants,” Robin’s children said in a statement via the team.
“For all of us, it is a tremendous delight and a little surreal to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of a World Series game for our team to our dad’s best friend. We could not think of a better way to celebrate his memory. Let’s go Giants!”
Last week, Zelda unveiled a new tattoo in honor of her ‘Poppo’ on her Instagram account. The photo of the hummingbird ink was accompanied by the following caption:
“For poppo. Thank you to the incomparable @drwoossc for so beautifully bringing my reminders to life. I’ll always put my hand out to shake with a smile.”

For poppo. Thank you to the incomparable @dr_woo_ssc for so beautifully bringing my reminders to life. I’ll always put my hand out to shake with a smile. As for this Instagram, I don’t know in what capacity I’ll continue using it in the future, but I’m leaving it up regardless so that fake accounts hoping to use my name or misuse my family’s photos will get no traction. To be clear, this is MY ONLY account. Publicly, I have Twitter, and this. If other people post quotes and photos claiming to be me or my family, please, do not send them personal information or click links, even for charity. They could be utilizing sympathy to scam you. For the record, no one has ever or will ever speak for me but me. Thank you.
The new image is placed above the young woman’s tattoo of her father’s birthdate, “7.21.51.”
Robin passed away on Aug. 11 from suicide. He was 63-years-old.
