• Braun, Axford treat Brewers fans to free tickets

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Sep 28, 2012
    That's because Axford and Ryan Braun combined to foot the bill for 5,000 tickets to Sunday's game against the Astros, which were gobbled up by fans at Brewers.com on Friday morning in about 45 minutes. "It's definitely something that's special to me," Braun said. Braun reached 40 home runs back on Sept. Braun is the ninth player to put together a 40/30 season Jeff Bagwell and Barry Bonds each did it twice and the first since Alfonso Soriano with the Nationals in 2006. Reliever Eric Gagne made a similar gesture in 2008, when he bought 5,000 tickets for fans in the final week. "When we really notice it is we go on the road and we see teams that are in first place, or teams like when we went into Pittsburgh a month ago and they were hot, and people came in to watch them, and then the last trip we went in and there wasn't that many people there," manager Ron Roenicke said.
