MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brewers slugger Ryan Braun is talking publicly for the first time since accepting a season-ending suspension for violating Major League Baseball's anti-drug agreement.

Braun was taking part in a food drive at Miller Park on Wednesday. He says he is "deeply remorseful," and eager to get back to playing.

Braun was the first star to be suspended as part of the doping scandal surrounding the Biogenesis anti-aging clinic in Florida.

The five-time All-Star tested positive for elevated testosterone in October of his 2011 NL MVP season, but his 50-game suspension was overturned when an arbitrator ruled the urine sample was mishandled. Braun has apologized for blaming specimen collector Dino Laurenzi Jr. He says they have "made amends." He says he has not made any payments to Laurenzi.
