All-Star Christian Yelich is getting in plenty of practice hitting long balls before the Home Run Derby in Cleveland.

Yelich did a practice round Friday before the Brewers-Pirates game and hit one out of P-N-C Park, breaking the window of a boat docked in the Allegheny River. Fox Sports Wisconsin reports the Pittsburgh police were called but Yelich was taken in for questioning. Teammate Ryan Braun told reporters that's how legends are made. Yelich will face Vladimir Guerrero, Junior in the first round of the Home Run Derby Monday at Progressive Field.
