Milwaukee Brewers star Ryan Braun hit a two run homer on his return to spring training in an 11-3 win over the Oakland Athletics.
In what was his first at-bat since his return from a 65-game suspension for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal, Braun made it seem like he had never been away.
Braun hit an 0-1 pitch from starter Tommy Milone clear of the fence to the corner of left-field, helping the Brewers on their way to a pounding victory.
“Not surprising,” Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said to reporters. “He’s one of those guys, just a special athlete.”
It was Braun's first time back in the line-up since July 21 last year and was also his debut in his adopted right field position. Obviously it was his homer that impressed the fans most.
Luckily someone in the crowd was filming at just the right time to capture that recognisable swing in action.
