The 9-year-old daughter of Dodger Stadium beating suspect Giovanni Ramirez has given a sworn statement supporting his claim he never set foot in the stadium on Opening Day … when Bryan Stow was attacked.


TMZ obtained a photo of Giovanni and his daughter — as well as the girl’s statement … detailing how she and her father spent March 31.

In the statement — given to Giovanni’s attorney Chip Matthews — the girl says they were at an aunt and uncle’s home early that day … when her dad gave her a $100 bill to go buy a drink for him at a nearby store. She says her father was napping with his girlfriend at the time.

After the pickup, the girl says she played basketball with a cousin outside the house — and then at 2PM left with her aunt and uncle to go get another cousin from school. She says when they returned she hung out with her father and family — at the house — for the rest of the day.

Matthews says, if necessary, the girl will testify on her father’s behalf.
