Brewers' COO Schlesinger Says Response To Braun Has Been Positive From Fans, Sponsors
Published July 26, 2013
TEAM EFFORT: Schlesinger wrote of Braun's future marketing with the team, "We have not finalized our 2014 marketing plans. As we have previously stated, as great a baseball player as Ryan is, we are not defined solely by any one player. We have rising stars such as [SS] Jean Segura, [CF] Carlos Gomez, [P] Wily Peralta, and [C] Jonathan Lucroy who are highly marketable. Our marketing efforts, as in prior years, will celebrate several players and focus on the great Miller Park experience and the affordability of that experience" (BIZJOURNALS.com, 7/26).
HOLD YOUR TONGUE: In Milwaukee, Haudricourt & Rosiak report Braun confirmed Thursday that he "plans to speak publicly about his drug suspension as soon as 'legally allowed.'" Braun through the Brewers PR department said, "When I am able to, I will speak. I know it was difficult for everybody, but I was not, and still am not, legally allowed to say anything yet" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 7/26).
