The Hall of Fame shortstop and outfielder for the Milwaukee Brewers and two-time American League MVP Award winner, Robin Yount, was the 2019 recipient of the Citizen Support award during the Milwaukee Armed Forces Week banquet at the Wisconsin Club.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robin_YountYount was the third pick overall in the June 1973 Major League Baseball draft, one slot ahead of fellow Hall of Famer and 3,000 Hit Club member Dave Winfield. Yount made his major league debut the following April, at eighteen years old. After going hitless in his first four games, Yount hit a game-winning home run in his sixth. Yount is currently the last 18-year-old to hit a home run in the Major Leagues (Andruw Jones, Bryce Harper, and Juan Soto are the most recent teenagers to have hit Major League home runs, but did so as 19-year-olds). On September 14, 1975 (two days before his 20th birthday), Yount broke Mel Ott's 47-year-old record for most games played in the major leagues before turning 20.

Hall of Famer Robin Yount played his entire 20 year career with the Milwaukee Brewers, earning two MVP Awards and three All-Star appearances along the way. His only chance to play in the World Series was in 1982 against the St. Louis Cardinals. It was an epic battle that went 7 games, but Cardinals prevailed and Yount has no regrets. In the final Radio Baseball Cards episode of the season, Yount remembers what it's like to finally play in the Fall Classic.
