The Atlanta Braves are hosting the Cincinnati Reds tonight at SunTrust Park. It just so happens a dead body was discovered at their home field earlier today.

According to multiple reports, a dead body was found in a walk-in freezer at the ballpark on Tuesday. The man, who has not been identified, was a third-party contractor.

He was found by another man who works for the company. The death is under investigation.

The Braves are said to be cooperating with the investigation.

SunTrust Park has been the home field for the Braves since April 2017. The team is playing the Reds right now and is set to host Cincinnati again tomorrow afternoon.

As of now, there's no indication if foul play was involved or if the death was accidental.

We will update you with more details as they become available.
