Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna heard your disdain for his selfie celebration in a losing cause, and has decided to up the ante by partying at every base on his way home.
Alright, so maybe it’s not you specifically — or anyone fun you know — but there were some old heads whose heads rolled (ironically) when Ozuna brought out a phone selfie celebration for…pretty much every home run.
Since that evidently got on some nerves with the old guard, Ozuna has opted to steer into the skid, identifying more with his younger fans — the let the kids play crowd. On his grand slam against the Washington Nationals, Ozuna celebrated at every base with a different celly entirely.
Ozuna went with the familiar selfie celebration on his way to home plate, but give him credit for staying creative on the fly.
Braves stuck in the middle of crowded NL East standings
Braves fans were rightly insulted when PECOTA insinuated they’d finish third in the division this season after coming one game away from the World Series in 2020. Yet, they’re actually sitting in a worse position in early May, albeit just 1.5 games behind the division-leading Phillies. The Phillies, Mets, Nationals, Braves and Marlins are all separate by just two games.
Something’s gotta give, and a win over the Nationals could mean everything come September.
