KeJuan Wilkins a spokesman for the world's largest shoe and apparel maker acknowledged Friday that the company no longer has a relationship with Braun. The outfielder accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension imposed last week by Major League Baseball for his connection to the Biogenesis drug scandal. Braun had been wearing Nike shoes and batting gloves for his entire seven-year major league career and the company recently began selling "Big Bat Like Braun" and "Braun Owns Milwaukee" T-shirts in stores.
