The Brewers' Christian Yelich reportedly ate at Chipotle 142 days in a row with J. T. Realmuto, when they were in the minor leagues together.

MLB Insider Robert Murray tweeted Tuesday that Brewers hitting coach Andy Haines once told him of the story. And Realmuto, who now is a catcher for the Philadelphia Phillies, confirmed the news.

Earlier on Tuesday, Yelich tweeted a photo of what appears to be his special Chipotle card, which reads, "Christian Yelich's custom made, hand-crafted, responsibly raised, sustainably grown burrito card."

In a 2019 interview with GQ, Yelich said that the top third thing he can't live without while on the road is a Chipotle burrito.

"It's something to get quick, fairly healthy for you if do it the right way. I got on that routine when I was really young... and I don't see it changing anytime soon," Yelich said at the time.
