MILWAUKEE -- Sunday's game between the D-backs and Brewers at Miller Park was delayed after the first inning while paramedics administered emergency CPR to a Brewers staffer who collapsed in the bullpen.
Brewers vice president of communications Tyler Barnes said after the game that the team was not in position to release any details about the man, who was described by one player as a longtime club employee.
In a somber Milwaukee clubhouse, left fielder Ryan Braun declined to talk about the team's walk-off win or his selection to the All-Star Game.
"In light of what happened today, I'm not really in a place to talk about anything related to baseball," Braun said. "I think it would be inappropriate. I think there are constant reminders in life that there are things that are far more important than this game that we play."
Paramedics rushed to the bullpen during the first inning, aided at first by Brewers relievers. After the final out of the inning, play was halted while paramedics continued CPR as the man was transported through the bullpen gate and off the field.
As the second inning began, Milwaukee bullpen coach Stan Kyles, bullpen catcher Marcus Hanel and several players huddled in prayer.
"It's hard to pay attention [to the game] after something like that," said one of those players, Tim Dillard. He said he saw the man at Miller Park "every day," of his Brewers tenure, except for two games earlier this season when the man tended to a family emergency.
Barnes briefly addressed the incident after the game.
"We don't have any more information right now that we can share with you," he said. "We do appreciate everyone's concern."
