Watch: Christian Yelich’s brother throws out first pitch after military discharge

Christian Cameron Yelich

Cameron Yelich, the brother of Milwaukee Brewers MVP contender Christian Yelich, threw out the first pitch prior to Friday’s Brewers-Detroit Tigers game to much fanfare.

Cameron threw the pitch to brother Christian and then pumped up the crowd afterwards:

Cameron joined the Marines after high school and was honorably discharged after serving four years following his enlistment upon graduating high school. Prior to Friday, he hadn’t seen an MLB game in person since 2016.

Cameron traveled to Korea, Japan, the Philippines and Hawaii as part of his military service. An article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel earlier this year said he recently had been promoted to sergeant.

Christian homered on Friday with his brother in attendance and may end up capturing the NL MVP award while potentially leading the Brewers to the NL Central crown.

“Crazy, crazy year. Super proud of him. Hopefully he gets that MVP,” Cameron said of his brother.
