He was also the first, last year.
He also produced 44 home runs and 97 RBI in just 130 games, putting together an MLB-leading 1.100 OPS.
Yelich's .326 mark led the NL in 2018, a year where the Brewers came within five wins of a World Series title.
He is the only player in Brewers history to win a batting title.
