Cleveland Guardians first baseman Josh Naylor is taking home run celebrations to another level yet again.

Naylor hit his helmet with his bat following a go-ahead two-run blast in the fifth inning against the Oakland Athletics on Saturday:

"It was a cool moment, but it was for the boys and that's all I really play for," Naylor said postgame following the 6-3 win, according to Brian Dulik of The Associated Press.

Guardians manager Stephen Vogt is cool with Naylor's demonstrative behavior as long as he doesn't get hurt.

"That's Josh Naylor, man, he's emotional and charismatic," Vogt said. "As long as he didn't concuss himself, I'm all right with the celebration."

Naylor has headbutted former skipper Terry Francona and pretended to rock a baby after big hits in previous years.
