MILWAUKEE (AP) Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun acknowledges the possibility this might be his final season.
"There's at least a chance this is my last fan fest as a player," the 36-year-old said Sunday during the Brewers' annual winter fan festival and convention. "You definitely get a little nostalgic and think about how quickly it goes by. I've thought about it a little bit, but for me, the goal is always to stay fully present and try to be the best version of myself as a player this year, and then figure out the future when I get through the season."
Braun is entering the final year of a five-year, $105 million contract. His 13-year career thus far has has included the highs of winning the National League Most Valuable Player award in 2011 and the lows of serving a 65-game suspension in 2013 when an investigation linked him to the Biogenesis scandal.
