Newly-crowned National League MVP Christian Yelich is asking for your help in supporting the relief efforts in his native state of California, which has been ravaged by wildfires during the month of November.
Yelich joined The Mike Heller Show in Milwaukee and Madison to discuss how he, along with fellow Brewer, California native, and former NL MVP Ryan Braun, are working to raise funds to help families in need in their home state. The goal is set for $250,000.
In addition to discussing the relief efforts, Yelich also discussed his season in winning the NL MVP in his first season with the Milwaukee Brewers, helping the team reach the National League Championship Series, which they lost in seven games to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
