Ryan Braun Approached Johngy

In 2007, Ryan Braun burst onto the baseball scene with an outstanding rookie season for the Milwaukee Brewers. He followed his Rookie of the Year season with 2 more great seasons.
Braun's nickname is 'Hebrew Hammer', although Braun admits he really was raised with no faith. He is fine with the nickname and the connections and fans of all denominations are totally behind Braun.
Just a few days prior to the 2009 MLB All-Star game, I had the chance to ask Braun about being on the team and the home run derby. The quick inerview is below.
The funny part of this interview was that Braun basically came to us. We had just made our way to the batting cages and were checking out prospective targets. Braun walked up and pretty much offered himself to us. Pretty cool.
