Former Major League Baseball MVP Braun SuspendedBy: Bennett Rieser - July 22, 2013
Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers has performed a non-denial denial when he responded Monday to allegations of performance-enhancing substance use. Braun, who was named as an MVP in autumn of 2011 after the World Series, claimed in his statement that he never used any steroids in spite of accepting what essentially amounts to a ban from baseball.
The Twitterverse is, of course, abuzz as the baseball world makes their opinions known…
The executive director of the MLB Player’s Association, Michael Weiner, released a press statement that reads: “I am deeply gratified to see Ryan taking this bold step. It vindicates the rights of all players under the Joint Drug Program. It is good for the game that Ryan will return soon to continue his great work both on and off the field.”
