It was just over a month ago that Christian Yelich in essence signed on with the Milwaukee Brewers for the remainder of his career, but with baseball shut down by the COVID-19 pandemic, he admitted it seems much longer than that.
“It feels like it was about a year ago,” Yelich said Friday in a telephone interview from his home in the Los Angeles area.
“You try to make the most of it. You can’t really go out and do a whole lot right now.”
Yelich, who at 28 has shown a real touch for philanthropy, continued to make the most of his down time by joining Brewers teammate Ryan Braun and area companies in donating money to send meals from Omar Shaikh’s 3rd Street Market Hall to healthcare workers on the front lines of the pandemic in Milwaukee.
