On July 5th last season, Christian Yelich stole career base #150 against the Chicago Cubs. In doing so, Yelich became the 107th player in Major League history to join the 150/150 Club… 150 or more career stolen bases and 150 or more career home runs.
As we approach the 2023 season, Yelich has 174 career HRs and 156 career stolen bases in his 10 years in the majors.
It’s interesting to note that Yelich is also the 16th player in this 150/150 club who has played for the Milwaukee Brewers at one time in their career. Here’s a list of the 16 players from the MLB 150/150 Club who spent time in a Brewers uniform:
MLB 150/150 Club members who played for the Brewers at one time
Hank Aaron, Dante Bichette, Ryan Braun, Mike Cameron, Ray Durham, Julio Franco, Curtis Granderson, Marquis Grissom.
Andrew McCutchen, Paul Molitor, Dave Parker, Gary Sheffield, Devon White, Jim Wynn, Christian Yelich, Robin Yount.
Yelich could become the next Milwaukee player to reach 100 home runs and 100 stolen bases in a Brewers uniform. As a member of the Brew Crew. Yelich has 115 home runs and 84 stolen bases, thus leaving him 16 steals short of this group. For the record, Yelich had 19 stolen bases for the Brewers last season.
