Longtime Brewers slugger Ryan Braun announces retirement

Longtime Brewers slugger Ryan Braun announced his retirement on Tuesday, ending a 14-year career spent entirely with Milwaukee.

Braun, who turns 38 in November, is a free agent and has not played this season. He last appeared in September 2020.

Drafted No. 5 by the Brewers in 2005, Braun reached the majors in 2007 and won NL Rookie of the Year. He then earned five consecutive All-Star selections and claimed the 2011 NL MVP award.

In 2013, Braun apologized for using performance-enhancing drugs during the 2011 season. He went on to earn a sixth All-Star selection in 2015 and finishes his career batting .296 with 352 home runs and 1,154 RBIs.
