Milwaukee Brewers fan runs onto field to greet Ryan Braun


It’s certainly been an eventful two days for embattled Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun.

The outfielder, who was suspended last season for the use of performance enhancing drugs was given not one, but two standing ovations during the Brewers home opener against the Atlanta Braves on Monday afternoon.

Braun was given rousing applause from fans during player introductions, but that praise only grew come his first at-bat which saw fans applauding him as if he had just broken an MLB record.

Then come Tuesday (when mascots weren’t biting other mascots), a Milwaukee Brewers ‘fan’ decided meeting Braun during the game was worth a hefty fine and jail time.

Leaping over the first base wall, the fan rushed over to Braun and then center fielder Carlos Gomez, from whom he received a high-five.

It was a short thrill though as just moments after rushing both Braun and Gomez, the fan was implanted into the grass thanks to a hard tackle from members of the security team.
