Ronald Acuna Jr. channeled LeBron James with his home run celebration on Saturday, and James took notice.
Acuna’s homer gave the Atlanta Braves a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates. While in the dugout after rounding the bases, Acuna did James’ famous chalk toss with the help of teammate Guillermo Heredia.
James loved what he saw from the 24-year-old Acuna, and he took to Twitter Saturday to share his approval of the celebration.
“Ayyeeee!!” James wrote. “Man I love this kid!”
