Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers decided to show up at Milwaukee Brewers spring training to see how his favorite baseball team is coming along.
Rodgers went to a few Brewer games last season and threw out the first pitch against the New York Mets. He even sat in the Fox Sports Wisconsin TV commentator’s booth with Brian Anderson and Bill Schroeder during that game. He discussed whether or not the Packers could repeat as Super Bowl champions and even did a few play-by-plays.
The NFL MVP is best friends with reigning National League MVP Ryan Braun and has shown support for him over the past few months during the MLB’s investigation of his failed urine test. Independent arbitrator Shyam Das sided with Braun and cleared him of his 50-game suspension. Shortly after the news broke Rodgers came to Braun’s defense and voiced his support.
“MLB and cable sports tried to sully the reputation of an innocent man. Picked the wrong guy to mess with. Truth will set u free #exonerated,” Rodgers said via his Twitter account @AaronRodgers12.
It is awesome that Rodgers decided to visit the Brewers in Arizona and show his support for the team. He was seen talking to several players including Braun, second baseman Rickie Weeks, and right fielder Corey Hart as well as manager Ron Roenicke.
