Watch: Family Names Dog 'Yeli' After Christian Yelich Home Run

Brewers star Christian Yelich surprised two young sisters with a puppy Monday after the family brought a sign to the ballpark on March 30 that read, "Yelich, hit a homerun and my dad buys me a puppy!"

Michael and Jessica Labodda followed through on the promise of getting a mini doodle puppy, and the Brewers contacted the parents wanting to put the surprise together, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Yelich then surprised 6-year-old Lola and 4-year-old Libby as the family watched batting practice Monday.

The dog's name is Yeli in fitting tribute.

That was Yelich's third home run in just as many games.
