Christian Yelich 2018 National League Outstanding Player
Hear from Christian Yelich on being voted the 2018 National League Outstanding Player:
Yelich, who was selected over Javier Báez and Trevor Story, joined the Brewers in a trade last winter and powered the club to the NL Central title with a second-half surge. The 26-year-old outfielder from Southern California made a strong run for the Triple Crown and ended up as the Brewers’ first batting champion (.326) while hitting 36 homers and driving in 110 runs. He led the NL with a .598 slugging percentage and a 1.000 OPS. In 2018, Yelich twice hit for the cycle and was selected for his first All-Star Game.
