"The foot tap, I don't know," Bellinger said. "Live and learn. No more shoulder bumps, I'm gonna go foot."
Bellinger hit a home run in Sunday's NLCS finale and popped his shoulder out of its socket when he bumped arms with teammate Enrique Hernandez.
That was enough for him to avoid another incident with his shoulder in the event of a homer.
"I said it before the game," he said, according to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register. "If I hit one today, I'm not touching anyone's arm."
His shoulder seemed to be in fine form, as he also made a beautiful leaping catch to rob Austin Meadows of extra bases in the ninth inning.
