Braun loses restaurant deals

BROOKFIELD -

A restaurant group is ending its ties with suspended Brewers slugger Ryan Braun.


SURG Restaurant Group said in a statement Thursday it will change the name of the 8-Twelve MVP Bar & Grill in the Milwaukee suburb of Brookfield.

"Eight" is Braun's jersey number, while "twelve" refers to the number worn by quarterback Aaron Rodgers with the Green Bay Packers.

Major League Baseball suspended Braun for the rest of the season in July for doping.

Braun and Rodgers were friends and business associates, but Rodgers said during training camp he felt duped by Braun's previously strong denial of doping accusations.

Restaurant group co-owner Michael Polaski said he appreciated the restaurant's relationship with Braun and wished the slugger success.

Braun in the same statement said he supported the decision.
