The acting chops of reigning Countrywide League MVP Christian Yelich ended up on total show Monday evening when he appeared in the 1st couple minutes of “Magnum P.I.,” a CBS reboot of the first series from the 1980s.

The Milwaukee Brewers outfielder appears as himself, a “shock” for the Minimal League workforce coached by Rick Wright (played by Zachary Knighton) and a relationship arranged by a pal of the “workforce operator.” Rick presents to toss batting practice to Yelich (certainly, he is acquired a Brewers hat), touting his back-in-the-day curveball, and Yelich … effectively, you can guess how this goes.

To movie, Yelich flew for a couple days to Hawaii, in which “Magnum P.I.” is both equally set and filmed. It is really one particular element of a fast paced off-season for Yelich, which has integrated raising revenue to enable rebuilding attempts pursuing California forest fires and a lethal shooting in his hometown in Thousand Oaks.

Yelich was not observing the episode are living he was courtside at the Milwaukee Bucks recreation in Phoenix that tipped at the similar time as the episode’s airing on CBS. The Brewers, immersed in spring coaching at the American Loved ones Fields of Phoenix fewer than 10 miles from the arena, ended up off Monday.

So now, the question gets to be: Whose cameo was far better?

In 2007, Brewers Chris Capuano, Jeff Suppan, Monthly bill Corridor and J.J. Hardy all appeared on preferred soap opera “The Youthful and the Restless,” filming in May possibly when the Brewers ended up in Los Angeles and airing in June. All 4 experienced a number of speaking lines.

The negative information: The 2007 Brewers workforce hit the skids correct immediately after filming pursuing a torrid begin to the season, and the section capabilities a reference to Suppan’s do the job as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals. No person needs to remember the Cardinals. 

But on the vibrant aspect, all 4 Brewers appeared to manage the thespian role quite effortlessly. This is a tricky connect with. Which Brewers cameo was far better?
