Brewers Owner Offers Brauns' Salary In Vouchers To Fans After Suspension
by Kelsey Cunniff

 MILWAUKEE— There is finally some good news for Milwaukee Brewer fans. Brewers owner Mark Attansio is offering fans a reason to come back to Miller Park after star player Ryan Braun was suspended for the rest of the season by Major League Baseball last week. The team announced that each fan that shows up during any of the 12 home games in August will receive a $10 voucher that can be used on food, beverages, tickets, or merchandise.

An average of 31,000 fans have shown up to Brewers games despite the losing record the team has this season. If the average continues and every fan redeems their voucher, it would cost the team nearly $3.6 million dollars.

With Braun being suspended without pay for the rest of the season, the Brewers saved roughly $3 million. The investment to the fans is an attempt to soothe a trying summer for the team.
