Ryan Braun Retires After 14 Years With The Brewers

Former MVP Ryan Braun has now retired from baseball after 14 years. The slugger won the 2011 National League MVP, however he is most known for admitting to steroid use in July of 2013. Braun was still able to accomplish plenty in the sport as a career .296 hitter with 352 career homers and 1,154 RBI. His only blemish was that positive test that can hardly be ignored.

Here's his farewell speech to Brewers and baseball fans around the world:

As Braun mentioned, he'll be attending Brewers' September 26th home game to give a final farewell. No matter which way you slice it, Ryan Braun raked and steroids don't help you hit the ball.

Congratulations on a great career, Ryan Braun.
