Ryan Braun Issues Statement After Winning Appeal

MLB isn’t the only one issuing statements after the Ryan Braun appeal decision was announced Thursday.

Here’s a statement from Braun himself:

“I am very pleased and relieved by today’s decision.

“It is the first step in restoring my good name and reputation. We were able to get through this because I am innocent and the truth is on our side.

“We provided complete cooperation throughout, despite the highly unusual circumstances.

“I have been an open book, willing to share details from every aspect of my life as part of this investigation, because I have nothing to hide. I have passed over 25 drug tests in my career, including at least three in the past year."

Braun goes on to thank a number of people for helping him get through this, including his friends, family, the Brewers organization, his teammates, and his agents. He said he’s always respected the game of baseball and looks forward to the beginning of Brewers camp on Friday.
