At some point Saturday evening, hundreds of baseball fans, players, officials and members of the news media will sit in rapt attention as Ryan Braun approaches the podium to make a short speech in New York.

It has been a little over a month since news broke that Braun had tested positive for abnormally high levels of testosterone and was facing the possibility of a 50-game suspension. That came just weeks after Braun was named the National League Most Valuable Player by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

Braun, the Milwaukee Brewers' left fielder, has not made a public appearance since then, but on Saturday at its annual awards dinner, the writers association will present the award to Braun. Despite the controversy, he plans to attend.

Braun does not intend to do interviews Saturday, but perhaps his speech will reflect his sentiments.
