The Brewers are paying special tribute to Milwaukee Police Officer Matthew Rittner at Monday's game.

The game against the Atlanta Braves will begin with a moment of silence for Officer Rittner, followed by his wife, Caroline, throwing out the first pitch and being presented with the Rittner jersey that hung in the clubhouse throughout Spring Training.

The Milwaukee Police Department and the color guard will also be at Miller Park for the presentation.

Officer Rittner was killed in February while serving a search warrant.

The suspect in Rittner's killing was found guilty Friday.

First pitch is at 7:10 p.m.
