What a difference a year makes.
After his 50-game suspension for violating MLB's banned substance policy was overturned back in February, Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun stormed back on the field this season, leading the National League in home runs en route to his fifth straight Silver Slugger award and a chance to defend his 2011 NL MVP title.
Though he's still searching for that elusive World Series ring, it seems Braun has yet another reason to celebrate: getting engaged to girlfriend Larisa Fraser.
In a blog post that has since been removed, Fraser, a Canadian model and food blogger, let it slip that she and the slugger have decided to make it official. According to Busted Coverage, Fraser referred to Braun as her "boyfriend–fiance," noting that she's "still not used to that" particular label.
The site also points to a photo of the couple taken a few weeks ago in London in which Fraser appears to be wearing an engagement ring.
Braun is just one of a slew of baseball players with model wives and girlfriends.
Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander's relationship with Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton became public back in October, while San Francisco Giants pitcher and World Series champion Barry Zito is married to Amber Seyer, a model and former beauty queen.
