MILWAUKEE — Heroes are thanking heroes as members of the Milwaukee Fire Department and the Brewers saluted front line workers at Aurora St. Luke's, with some tasty Wahlburgers.

"There are few states, there are few communities that have handled this from top to bottom as well as we have," Brewers GM David Stearns says.

"The support does not have to be big to be impactful. We have team members who just make little cards to give them to other team members," VP of Operations at Aurora St. Luke's Dori Tooke says.

Now, the subject of baseball and what Brewers General Manager David Stearns thinks about what could happen.

"From a baseball standpoint, I hope and I think we all hope that we can provide a diversion. And that we can be part of the solution to what everyone is going through right now, and that we can do so in a safe and responsible manner. We're very hopeful that there can be games played in Milwaukee. We would love to be able to play baseball in our home city. In our home ballpark. At the outset, it seems that that would be without fans. If we are able to play. And we understand that. But to be able to provide any sort of diversion right now for our community, would be wonderful. And so we're very hopeful we can do that at Miller Park in Milwaukee," Stearns says.

It would be a much needed and entertaining distraction.
