Christian Yelich: Support from Baker Mayfield was ‘cool’

Christian Yelich

Christian Yelich talked on Friday about the support he received from Baker Mayfield a day earlier, and he was glowing about it.

Mayfield showed up to the Cleveland Browns’ Thursday night game against the New York Jets wearing a Yelich jersey.

That was pretty awesome, but things got even better. Mayfield entered the game in the second quarter for his NFL debut and proceeded to lead the Browns to a 21-17 comeback victory — the team’s first win since Dec. 2016. Then after the game, Mayfield concluded his press conference by shouting out Yelich for NL MVP.

Yelich and Mayfield worked out together earlier this year at Proactive Sports Performance in Yelich’s hometown of Westlake Village, Calif. The two became quick friends.

That support has carried over into the season, where Yelich has enjoyed a breakout year for the Milwaukee Brewers, while Mayfield became the toast of Cleveland overnight.

Yelich talked about the support from Mayfield prior to Friday’s game against the Pirates and said the MVP shoutout was especially cool.

The way Yelich has been playing, Mayfield’s call for him to be NL MVP is tough to dispute.
