This time, Naylor smacked himself in the head and headbutted Terry Francona, who was wearing a helmet. Seriously.

Remember earlier this season went Naylor exploded after hitting a home run against the Chicago White Sox?

The Guardians have been struggling as of late, losing five straight before winning two of three against the Twins. So, who can blame Naylor for sending the home fans away with a monster home run?
But, perhaps the celebration will be remembered for a long time, and hopefully Naylor’s head is ok.
