Christian Yelich and the Milwaukee Brewers just finished a series against Mookie Betts and the Los Angeles Dodgers. During this series the Dodgers superstar was not only evading haunted hotels in Milwaukee, but he was starting up his own show titled “On Base with Mookie Betts”. For his first broadcast he had Christian Yelich make a guest appearance.
Several topics were discussed during the 47 minute episode including pitch clock rules, world baseball classic experiences, Yelich being compared to Pete Davidson, and much more. One interesting story that Christian Yelich shared was his experience with Barry Bonds as his hitting coach.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich shares an iconic story regarding Barry Bonds on Mookie Bett’s new show.
In the video above there is reference to a few Barry Bonds hitting drills as well as thought processes when it comes to hitting. Towards the end of the clip Christian Yelich talks about a time that he asked Bonds what his thoughts on the shift were. Bonds responded with, “Man, the only thing the shift did was stop me from hitting .400 because you can’t catch it (the ball) if it’s in the water.”
Overall the first ever episode of “On Base With Mookie Betts” was good and insightful. There were some other good stories and information in there that are typically not shared. The full video can be found by clicking here.
