Ryan Joseph Braun (born November 17, 1983, in Mission Hills, Los Angeles, California), nicknamed The Hebrew Hammer, is an American right-handed Major League Baseball All-Star left fielder for the Milwaukee Brewers.

He was a two-time All American baseball player at the University of Miami, where he was named "National Freshman of the Year" by Baseball America in 2003. The Brewers drafted him in the first round (fifth overall) in the 2005 major league draft. He was the team's Minor League Player of the Year in 2006.

Braun has twice led the National League (NL) in slugging percentage (in 2007, while setting the major league rookie record, and 2011), twice led it in extra-base hits (in 2008 and 2011), and led it in hits for the 2009 season. On defense, he led all major league outfielders in fielding percentage in 2008, twice led NL left fielders in fielding percentage (2009 and 2011), and led NL left fielders in range factor in 2009. His 128 home runs through 2010 were the 8th-most by any major leaguer ever through their first four seasons. Through 2011, he was third among all active ballplayers in career slugging percentage, and first among active left fielders in career fielding percentage.

Braun won the National League Rookie of the Year Award in 2007. He was voted a starting All Star the past four consecutive years (2008 11), and won the NL Outfielder Silver Slugger Award the past three straight seasons (2008 10). He was named to the 2011 Sporting News
list of the 50 greatest current players in baseball, ranking No. 16.
