When we last saw Cody Bellinger’s face when it wasn’t pondering existence, he appeared to be in a lot of pain.
In Game 7 of the NLCS, he hit the go-ahead homer for the Los Angeles Dodgers, then gave a forearm smash to teammate Kike Hernandez that turned out to dislocate Bellinger’s shoulder.
Bellinger knew he needed a new celebration, since the Dodgers need his arm intact to hit mammoth home runs and make amazing plays in the field.
So what did he end up doing after a home run in Game 1 of the 2020 World Series? He didn’t use his hands or arms at all!
No shoulder injury this time! 😂

That’s right! Toe taps! LeBron James approved.
Hahaha!! Leg tap celebrations for him.
