Well, Cody Bellinger clearly learned his lesson …
The Dodgers star balled out of his mind, again, in Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday … but instead of celebrating with forearm bashes — he turned to his feet to dap up teammates!
The scene was hilarious … just two days after Belli dislocated his shoulder in the chaos following a game-winning HR in the NLCS on Sunday — Cody hit another huge dinger off Rays starter Tyler Glasnow.
And, as the outfielder rounded 3rd base and headed for home, everyone wondered … how was he going to celebrate this one?!
Turns out, Belli protected his arms at all costs … and gave his squadmates love taps with his cleats!!!
The move was so epic … even LeBron James gave Cody his stamp of approval, writing on social media, “Hahaha!! Leg tap celebrations for him.”
As for Bellinger’s take on the HR celly switch-up … he told reporters after the game, “I said it today before the game: ‘If I hit one, I’m not touching anybody’s arm.'”
He added with a laugh, “I think I’ll continue to do that, maybe my whole career.”
Bellinger also had an insane catch later in the game … helping the Dodgers seal the 8-3 victory over Tampa Bay.
Looks like pregame advice from Dad really paid off, huh?!
