Longtime Brewers OF Ryan Braun announces retirement

Six-time All-Star outfielder Ryan Braun announced his retirement Tuesday.

Braun, 37, played his entire 14-year career with the Milwaukee Brewers (2007-20). He was the National League Rookie of the Year in 2007 and the league’s Most Valuable Player in 2011.

The Brewers posted a video message from Braun on Twitter.

“Today, more than 14 years after I first took the field as a Milwaukee Brewer, I’ve decided to retire,” he said. “While it’s impossible to summarize my emotions, what I feel most is one, simple thing — gratitude. I just wanted to take a moment to say ‘thank you.'”

Braun batted .296/.358/.532 with 352 home runs, 1,154 RBIs and 216 stolen bases in 1,766 games.

He led the National League with 203 hits in 2009 and with 41 homers and 108 runs scored in 2012.

Braun helped the Brewers reach the playoffs five times. He reached the National League Championship Series twice, losing to the St. Louis Cardinals in 2011 and the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2018.

Milwaukee drafted Braun with the No. 5 overall pick in 2005. The Brewers declined his $15 million option for the 2021 season and made him a free agent last October.
