'Pinocchio' Braun t-shirt

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Aug 21, 2013

MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee Brewers fan has found a rather unusual way to make a point about suspended slugger Ryan Braun.

620WTMJ "Wisconsin's Morning News" host Gene Mueller took the above picture of a fan at Miller Park during Wednesday's Brewers-Cardinals game.

The fan's t-shirt had Ryan Braun's number and the name of a famous lying puppet from an Italian children's tale.

Braun is serving a 65 game suspension after a positive drug test in 2011 and major connections to the shuttered Biogenesis clinic.

He made a public pronouncement of his innocence in 2012, but evidence was overwhelming against him before his PED-related suspension.
