MILWAUKEE -- Suspended Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun is personally calling fans and offering an apology for using performance-enhancing drugs. Joao Mario Jersey . Wes Aldridge, 58, of Muskego got a call at his office, a phone number he had provided to the Brewers as a season ticket holder. Aldridge was skeptical when the caller said he was Ryan Braun. "I looked around at the other phones in the office to see who was messing with me," he said Friday. Aldridge said he didnt waste any time getting to the question on the mind of many Brewers fans. Why would he take a banned substance? "The only thing he said was he had a friend that gave him the item and he didnt think it would do any harm at that time," Aldridge said. On July 22, Braun agreed to a 65-game suspension resulting from Major League Baseballs investigation of the now-closed Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic, which was accused of providing banned substances to players. Braun admitted he took a cream and a lozenge containing banned substances while rehabilitating an injury during his 2011 National League MVP season. The calls started Thursday. "It was his idea," said Rick Schlesinger, the Brewers chief operating officer. "He came to us and said he wanted to call fans," including season ticket holders, partial season ticket holders and individual buyers. The Brewers turned over a list of several dozen random names, Schlesinger said. "He said he wanted to call everybody on the list," Schlesinger added. After Braun started making calls, the Brewers began to hear from some of the fans he called, according to Tyler Barnes, the Brewers vice-president of communications. "They were appreciative of the outreach. The vast majority were appreciative of it. We think its a nice gesture on Ryans part. We realize some are going to be grateful and others are going to be a little more hesitant," Barnes said. Aldridge said he got the impression Braun felt bad about what had happened. He said Braun apologized and said he made a mistake. But, Aldridge said he will keep his Ryan Braun memorabilia packed up and out of the sight of his grandsons. "I didnt want them to think I was going to back someone who cheated the game," he said. Schlesinger said he has talked to Braun about the calls, which he said were ongoing. "He expects some fans will still be angry with him and tell him so on the phone. He wanted to hear the good, the bad and the ugly," Schlesinger said. Daniel Carrico Jersey . So he and his Toronto FC teammates say they will have no problem getting up for their Amway Canadian Championship final against rival Montreal Impact, even if the result doesnt count toward Major League Soccer standings. Rui Patricio Jersey . As Valanciunas was whistled for a rare technical toward the end of the third quarter - a result of waving his hand at an official after being called for a foul - Lowry pulled the Raptors sophomore aside, corralling him by his jersey and patting him on the back. http://www.soccerportugalshop.com/world-cup-eliseu-football-jersey/ . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell.LISBON, Portugal -- Substitute Lima scored six minutes from the end to give Benfica a 2-1 win over Juventus in the Europa League first-leg semifinals on Thursday. Benfica will take a slender advantage over the Serie A leader to next weeks return leg in Turin. Lima received a pass inside the area and fired into the top corner, restoring Benficas lead after Carlos Tevezs 72nd-minute equalizer. Central defender Ezequiel Garay put Benfica ahead in the second minute with a header from a corner which Gianluigi Buffon, diving low to his left, reached with both hands but couldnt keep out. Sevilla beat Valencia 2-0 in the other all-Spanish semifinal. Juventus is pursuing its first continental trophy in 17 years. The once dominant Turin club is making its first appearance in the final four of a European competition since finishing runner-up in the 2003 Champions League. This years final will be at its home stadium. "Our victory doesnt decide anything, its still wide open, but at least we go to Turin with a lead," Benfica coach Jorge Jesus said. Portuguese champion Benfica, which lost in the Europa League final to Chelsea last year and is unbeaten in its last 122 European home games, produced a spell of early pressure, and Miralem Sulejmani was poised to extend the Lisbon clubs lead in the 11th but skewed his shot from the left. Nani Jersey. Then Lazar Markovic let the ball roll too far when he was set up for a shot on the other flank. It was one-way traffic as Benfica attacked wide on the wings to stretch its visitors three-man backline, while Juventus was tame going forward. The home defence had the measure of Tevez and Mirko Vucinic, who didnt seriously threaten until Tevez broke through on the half hour but was closed down before he could shoot. Juventus came out more assertive for the second half, and Paul Pogbas 54th-minute header had Artur leaping to his right for an acrobatic save to prevent an equalizer. "Juventus is hard to stop. In the first half we managed to keep them at bay but in the second half they caused us difficulties as some of our players started to get tired," Jesus said. Brazilian striker Lima came on in the 62nd to revive Benficas fading challenge and soon made a difference. Marchisio and Giorgio Chiellini both squandered chances to level the score in the final minutes.
