(MILWAUKEE) — As the 2014 MLB season inches closer, Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is excited and ready for a new chapter in his career.
Speaking at an offseason team event this weekend, Braun says he is constantly trying to make amends with fans and teammates following his 65-game suspension last year for violating Major League Baseball’s anti-drug agreement.
“I wish I could go back and do things differently, but I can’t. All I can do is move forward and make the best of the opportunities presented to me,” Braun said.
The 2011 National League MVP made his first public appearance Sunday since admitting last year that he took performance-enhancing drugs; he accepted his suspension in late July.
In 61 games last season, Braun hit .298 with nine home runs and 38 RBIs.
