VIDEO: A.J. Ellis Hits First Home Run, Joins Dugout Dance Party

It was becoming a long wait for Los Angeles Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis to join the dugout dance party that ensues following a home run.

While Ellis had been a part of more than a few dances in the bubbles, he had yet to be the reason that the bubbles were turned on. The 33-year-old catcher has struggled at the plate this season, hitting under .200 without a home run and just 10 RBIs in 57 games.

In the eighth inning of Sunday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers, Ellis finally became a bubble catalyst when he drove the Marco Estrada pitch over the wall in left-center field for his first home run of the season. His teammates awaited his arrival with the bubbles and Ellis added his best dance moves.

Ellis nearly did it again in the ninth inning, but was robbed by left fielder Khris Davis in the Dodgers 5-1 victory.
