After doing the LeBron James “silencer” celebration in recent games, Atlanta Braves star Ronald Acuna Jr. gave a nod to Trae Young this time around.
On Tuesday against the Oakland Athletics, Acuna hit Cole Irvin’s pitch for a lead-off home run. After hitting the ball that flew to centerfield, the Venezuelan outfielder pulled out the “Ice Trae” celebration.

It’s definitely a nice gesture for his fellow Atlanta sports star. Even better, he lived up to his promise of doing the celebration when he hits a homer, not even making Trae Young and all Braves and Atlanta Hawks fans wait for it.

As mentioned, Acuna has been doing LeBron James’ silencer celebration as of late. Last Sunday against the Colorado Rockies, he pulled it off after delivering a 441-foot solo home run in the eighth inning of the contest. He also made the same celebration against the Milwaukee Brewers earlier in May, one that drew an epic reaction from the Los Angeles Lakers star himself.
With the way he’s racking up home runs, we’ll probably see Ronald Acuna Jr. do more Ice Trae celebrations with the Braves moving forward. As for Young, given how he has shown his support for Acuna before, it won’t be long before he reacts to the amazing tribute.
