Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has the story:
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Wednesday afternoon that suspended slugger Ryan Braun’s visit to Miller Park was merely to say hello to teammates and staff.
Braun had not been at the ballpark since July 22, when he accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension for evidence found that he purchased performance-enhancing drugs from the Biogenesis clinic that was investigated by MLB.
“He just came in to visit,” Roenicke said Wednesday night. “He told me a while ago when we talked that he wanted to come in. He didn’t want it to be a distraction. I told him it wouldn’t be. So, he came in and I’m really glad he did. … It was really nice to see him. All the staff was happy to see him; the players were happy to see him.”
Braun did not talk to the media and has not made any plans yet to answer questions.
He issued a lengthy written apology for his involvement in Biogenesis last month.
