Dodger Beating -- Daughter Backs Suspect Alibi

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.

I don't believe that a 9 year old can remember what she did for an entire day almost 2 months ago. Especially since she probably does this everyday. " hey fool, take $100 out the crack stash and go buy us a couple of forty's. Make sure you bring me all my change."

I say he was where ever his cell phone ping registers that night. Since the beating wasn't premediatated he didn't leave it has home assuming he beat some guy within an inch of his life. I won't believe his phone ended up at the stadium by 'magic' either. Where ever his cell phone, I suspect this guy was too.

A 9 year old who remembers the exact time '2PM' she did something on the exact day. Very convenient.

Can she even tell time? Is what I want to know.
