No, the owner of venerable Wrigley Field is not Milwaukee Brewers veteran outfielder Ryan Braun. It just seemed that way on Tuesday, both in real life and on Wikipedia.

As you can see above, someone who uses Wikipedia - the unofficial, crowdsourced encyclopedia on the World Wide Web - chose to make a joke about the fact that Braun had a dominant early game against the Cubs at Wrigley on Tuesday.
In his first two at bats, once in the first and once in the third inning, Braun hit home runs. Each was a two-run shot to help give Milwaukee an early 5-0 lead.
For his career, Braun has had much success there. In 163 games - a little more than one full regular season - Braun has a .323 average, 33 home runs, 24 stolen bases and 120 RBI.
By the time you read this, it's possible - if not probable - that someone else has crowdsourced the correct information on the owner of the stadium, Cubs owner Tom Ricketts.
