Yelich: "We've talked since the beginning of summer camp about what these [Justice. Equality. Now.] shirts mean. And there comes a time when you have to live it, you have to step up."— Adam McCalvy (@AdamMcCalvy) August 27, 2020
"There comes a time where you have to live it, you have to step up. You can't just wear these shirts and think that's all well and good and then when it comes time to act on it, or make stand or make a statement... you can't just not do it." - @ChristianYelich pic.twitter.com/ItMZyj3Muf— Milwaukee Brewers (@Brewers) August 27, 2020
