Cody Bellinger is in good spirits after dislocating his shoulder during Sunday night’s National League Championship Series game.

The 25-year-old Los Angeles Dodgers player gave his team a 4-3 lead at the bottom of the seventh inning of Game 7, where he hit a pitch into right field that helped them advance to the World Series.

Upon the completion of his run around the field and his return to home plate, Bellinger celebrated with his teammates, where he smashed arms with AJ Pollock before he did the same with Kiké Hernández. There, Bellinger dislocated his shoulder.

Later in the game, Bellinger motioned to a player off-screen that his shoulder had popped out of its socket, as seen in a video shared by SportsCenter.

The swingman — who joined the Warriors already having been an NBA All-Star and Olympic gold medalist — was a starter in his first season with Golden State under coach Mark Jackson, with 2012 top-10 pick Harrison Barnes relegated to bench duty.
