Ryan Braun At Spring Training


Maryvale, Arizona (WQOW) -- Two years ago, Ryan Braun of the Brewers held a spring training news conference, at which he denied charges of PED use.

Braun meets the media Thursday in Maryvale, and takes a much different tone after his 2013 season ended with a suspension handed down by Major League Baseball.

Braun says he's ready to get back on the field for the first time in a long time.

"It was challenging, it was difficult to be away from the game," says Braun, "it was disappointing to me to be away from the game, to be away from my teammates, to be away from the sport that I enjoy playing so much. Everyone has been extremely supportive and I appreciate that. Certainly when everything first occurred, there was some confusion because I wasn't allowed to say anything. It was an on-going and active investigation. But aside from that, my relationship with everybody has always been great and I don't anticipate a change moving forward."
