Ryan Braun has already given a public apology for his use of performance-enhancing drugs.
Now the Milwaukee Brewers slugger is taking the personal route, calling season-ticket holders individually to apologize for the actions that led to his season-ending suspension.
"He was very humble on the phone," Milwaukee bar owner and Brewers season-ticket holder Pat Guenther said after his conversation with Braun. "He wanted to reach out and for him to do this is an act of kindness. He wants the people of Wisconsin to support the Brewers and him."
Guenther and Wes Aldridge, another season-ticket holder on the receiving end of one of Braun's calls, thought it was a joke at first. But the Brewers have confirmed that it is, in fact, the 2011 National League MVP making the calls and that it was his idea to do so.
