Christian Yelich Gets Naked
“I regret nothing.”
Christian Yelich has a very impressive resume for his short time in the majors. Gold Glove winner. Silver Slugger winner. MVP. All Star. Home run leader (depending on the day and if Cody Bellinger hit one or not). Now he has another item to add: Nudie model.
The Brewers slugger bared all in a photo shoot for the ESPN: The Magazine’s annual Body Issue, hitting newsstands on September 6th. Photos from the issue won’t be available online until September 4th, but we just got a sneak peak from the shoot that leaves pretty much zero to the imagination:

Yelich’s photos look a bit different than former Brewers favorite Prince Fielder’s photos from the magazine in 2014. (He was with the Rangers by then). Other baseball players that have bared all in the magazine issue’s 11 year history include Dallas Keuchel and Yasiel Puig in 2018, Javier Baez (2017), Jake Arrieta (2016), Bryce Harper (2015), Giancarlo Stanton and Matt Harvey (2013), Jose Bautista (2012), Jose Reyes (2011), Hanley Ramirez (2010), and Nelson Cruz (2009). This will be the last year the issue is available in print, opting for an all digital format in the future.
The reigning NL MVP had a few things to say about the shoot. Watch the interview here:
