Ryan Braun Given Standing Ovation By Brewers Fans Before First At-Bat (Video)

1,599

Milwaukee Brewers fans apparently have forgiven Ryan Braun.

The once-disgraced slugger played Monday in his first game since being suspended 65 games last year for his connection with the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug scandal. Braun was widely vilified in baseball circles during the offseason, but Brewers fans welcomed him back with a standing ovation as he stepped to the plate for his first at-bat.

Some pundits on Twitter were not too pleased with the reception.

Braun followed the ovation by popping out to left field against Atlanta Braves starter Julio Teheran.
