Braun Suspended For Season, Apologizes
Some huge news hit major league baseball on Monday as it was announced that Former National League MVP Ryan Braun of the brewers has been suspended without pay for the rest of the season and the postseason in what appears to be the first of a series of suspensions resulting from baseball’s investigation of a Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs.
MLB Commissioner Bud Selig announced the penalty Monday, citing Braun for multiple “violations” of baseball’s drug program and labor contract. The Brewers star will miss at least 65 games.
Braun issued an apology to his fans on Monday as well saying: “I wish to apologize to anyone I may have disappointed,” reads Braun’s statement, “all of the baseball fans especially those in Milwaukee, the great Brewers organization and my teammates.”.
