He's back.

For those who didn't recognize the swing along with that number eight (or the, um, headline), that would be Brewers star Ryan Braun hitting a home run in his first plate appearance in a game since being suspended for the remainder of the 2013 season for his ties to the Biogenesis scandal.

Braun, 30, dealt with some nagging injuries and the aforementioned 65-game suspension last season, only managing 61 games. The five-time All-Star finished second in MVP voting in 2012 and won the award in the 2011. He's a good bet for a bounce-back season.
