Ryan Braun will have his first big intermingling with Brewers fans since his suspension at the annual "Brewers On Deck" fan event on Sunday, Jan. 26, at the Wisconsin Center.

Braun will be among 28 players the club lists to attend along with manager Ron Roenicke, coaches, front office personnel, broadcasters -- including Bob Uecker -- and alumni, including Robin Yount, Rollie Fingers and Gorman Thomas.

Since his 65-game suspension at the end of last season for violations of Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program, Braun's only public appearance was in the team's Thanksgiving food drive.

This year there is free admission to the event, set to run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT, and no tickets are required.

Food donations will be accepted through the Hunger Task Force at two main entrances to the Wisconsin Center, located at 4th Street and Wisconsin Avenue and 4th Street and Wells Street.

Players scheduled to attend are Jeff Bianchi, Michael Blazek, Braun, Hiram Burgos, Khris Davis, Marco Estrada, Mike Fiers, Yovani Gallardo, Scooter Gennett, Caleb Gindl, Tom Gorzelanny, Brooks Hall, Sean Halton, Donovan Hand, Johnny Hellweg, Jim Henderson, Elian Herrera, Brandon Kintzler, Kyle Lohse, Jonathan Lucroy, Hunter Morris, Jimmy Nelson, Jason Rogers, Logan Schafer, Kevin Shackelford, Will Smith, Tyler Thornburg and Rob Wooten.

Alumni include Jerry Augustine, Craig Counsell, Jim Gantner, Larry Hisle, Geoff Jenkins and Dave Nelson in addition to Fingers, Thomas and Yount.
