Ryan Joseph Braun was born on November 17, 1983 at Mission Hills within the city of Los Angeles. He is a well-known American baseball outfielder playing for Milwaukee Brewers in the Major League Baseball (MLB).

Right from the childhood Ryan and his younger brother, Steve were very much interested in baseball. During that very small age, they had sensed to have talent to drive to play for some big clubs and leagues. Ryan’s childhood was equally defined by academics rather than the sports. His worst grade was one B, in Advanced Placement Chemistry. His high school career started from Granada Hills High School located in Granada Hills, California. Throughout his junior year he played shortstop. Despite his success in the high school he wanted to go to the college for further study. Many clubs wanted to add his to the team. However he denied every offers and thus he was not selected in any big-league club in the 2002 draft. For his college career he was offered baseball scholarship by Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley. He instead attended the University of Miami as a freshman, but his baseball skill topped and never skipped a beat. The Milwaukee Brewers drafted Braun as third baseman in the first round in the 2005 major league draft. Ryan began playing for the A-Advanced Brevard Country Manatees. He joined Milwaukee Brewers, a major league team, in 2007 and is involved till present.  On September 9, the Brewers became the third team in major league history to start a game with three straight home runs with Braun as consecutive as bats.

Ryan Braun has been linked with many girls before his marriage. Ryan married his long-tern girlfriend, Larisa Fraser, in Malibu ceremony. Ryan was once tested positive for an elevated level of testosterone caused by a performance-enhancing drug. He faced 65 games suspension for that crime and the postseason. Ryan even lost $3.25 million as a penalty and did not appeal the suspension. He was charged for violation of the collective agreement. Once his former friend Ralph Sasson said that Ryan Braun cheated on Fiancée Larisa Fraser and other girlfriends. She told that “Admit that YOU have engaged in infidelities in every amorous relationship YOU have engaged in including YOUR current relationship with Ms. Fraser”. However this has not resulted into divorce yet. Ryan and Larisa have a first baby daughter named Celine Elysse.

Ryan has a contract of $45-$51 million from the year 2008 through the year 2015. It could increase to $51 million through incentives. It was the largest contract given to baseball players with only 3 years of experience. Ryan Braun has a net worth of $8 million.
