Local fans react to Braun suspension


We headed out to an area baseball diamond to talk with fans about the suspension of Ryan Braun by Major League Baseball.

At the D. C. Everest High School we found young players using the batting cages.

They told us they are disappointed about Braun and feel like he let the fans down.

"He lied about using steroids and now he is caught and he lied and let the Brewers down and the people of Wisconsin down,"  said 13-year-old  Christian Medick of Weston.

Former D. C Everest High School baseball player John Dzurka said he has always looked up to Braun but now he won't hold him in such high regard.

"The scandal hurts not only Braun, but all of the players in the MLB, " said Dzurka.

Braun is the first player the MLB suspended in its investigation into Biogenesis and accusations that it provided steroids for professional players.

The MLB suspended Braun for 65 games without pay.
