Ryan Braun Homers Three Times To Heavy Boos And "Cheater!" In Philly

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun showed off his power today in a 10-4 win over the Phillies, bashing three home runs to a Philadelphia crowd who reminded him of his suspension for banned substances last season. Seriously, they were not having any of it.

Braun's first home run may have been the funniest, as a guy in the crowd yells "CHEATER!" just as Braun connects with the ball. He gets thoroughly jeered while rounding the bases.


Braun's second was a solo shot, and the boos returned. The voice yelling "CHEATER!" came back, too. Stop booing! You're just making him stronger!

Phillies fans maintained their displeasure for Braun's last dinger. If you watch closely, you can see some kids trying to convince the dude who caught the ball to throw it back. (He doesn't.) And just when you think the video's about to end, "BOOO! CHEATER!" guy gets his opinion heard one final time.
