4. The Time He Did the ESPN Body Issue

Everyone, everywhere were drooling over the pictures Yelich did with ESPN for their annual body shoot. He was the second Brewer to do it, Prince Fielder being the first, although Fielder wasn’t on the Brewers when he did the shoot.

But, people definitely had their opinions on the body issue. Christian said that he had no problem doing it, and that it was a new experience for him. Definitely didn’t mind those pictures, if I do say so myself.

3. The Time He Told Roxane to Relax

With Yelich doing the Body Issue, soon came the critics and one in particular was not a fan of Yelich posing in the nude. A lady by the name of Roxane decided that Yelich’s pictures were ‘distasteful’ and that he should be ‘thinking of the kids that look up to him’…His response?

“Relax Roxane”.

Those two words took social media by storm, making Roxane a meme and the laughing stock of the baseball world. To make things funny, Christian even changed his walk up music for a day to Roxanne by the Police, definitely showed his trolly side.

He switched it back to his original walk up song afterwards, but it would’ve been fun if he kept it for a little while afterwards.

2. The Time He Hit For The Cycle Twice in a Season

Christian Yelich became the first player in MLB history to hit for the cycle twice in just one season against the same team. His first was August 30 against the Cincinnati Reds, when he went 6-for-6 at the plate and would do it again less than three weeks later.

He’s the fifth major league player to hit for the cycle several times in a season. Thankfully, Yelich was able to capture the memory when a young Brewers fan by the name of Michael got it all on video in exchange for a signed bat from Yelich.

1. That Time He Went Back-To-Back in Several Awards

Christian Yelich is an athlete who has performed many firsts and has broken records to be one of the best in MLB history. In 2018, he was honored with the NL MVP award, along with his first batting title and the Hank Aaron Award. Not only that, but he earned his second silver slugger with the successful 2018 season.

You thought he was done? No way, he was coming into 2019 hotter than ever. Even though his season was cut a month short and would miss the remaining 18 games the Brewers would go on to play, Yelich did end up going back-to-back in the NL batting title, with a batting average of .329, he received another Silver Slugger, and even won the Hank Aaron Award for the second year in a row. Unfortunately, he did fall short to Cody Bellinger for the NL MVP title for this season. But, Milwaukee fans know who the true MVP is.

The 2020 season is fast approaching and Brewers fans and baseball fans alike cannot wait to see Yelich back on the plate and in the field, crushing more records and maybe breaking some of his own.
