Brewers Turn Ryan Braun’s Salary Over To The Fans
The suspension of Milwaukee Brewer Ryan Braun, for admitting to using performance enhancing drugs, means the team doesn't have to pay the remaining $3.1 million on his 2013 contract. Instead they're taking that money and giving it back to the fans.
In a nice move by the Brewers organization, they'll be giving a ten-dollar voucher to every fan that attends one of the twelve home games in August. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, fans can use the vouchers on concessions, merchandise, or tickets.
The Brewers expect about 30,000 fans per game over that 12-game stretch, which adds up to about $3.6 million.
That's a pretty cool move by the MLB team.
