NOW: Catching up with Ryan Braun’s family ahead of NLDS Game 1

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- This division series is a big deal for members of the Brewers' families.

CBS 58 News spotted Ryan Braun's dad and his aunt in the ballpark.

"When I come watch him, I still feel like I'm watching him playing in high school," said Joe Braun, Ryan's dad.

Joe Braun was here for both the Brewers playoff appearances in 2011 and 2008. He's excited about what's happening this year.

His aunt said she also has fond memories of the last Brewers playoff game she attended. 

"Really amazing. I mean, coming to see him last time to play against the Cardinals and flew in at midnight on the red eye. Got up and I was at the ballpark and it's one of the most exciting days of my life," said Risha Braun, Ryan's aunt.

The Brauns got to visit with Ryan a few hours before the game as he warmed up.
