Ryan Braun has been busy making the apology rounds on his road to redemption, but in the process, it appears he may have skipped over the “A” names in his phone book. After issuing a public apology, the disgraced slugger personally called up some Brewers’ season ticket holders in an attempt to mend fences, as well as admit his guilt and regret.
