SHARE TODDLER DIES IN ACCIDENT BEFORE GAME

A 2-year-old boy was killed Wednesday afternoon just before a baseball game between the Milwaukee Brewers and Detroit Tigers when he was struck by a maintenance cart outside the stadium.

The toddler, who was accompanied by his father, was struck by the maintenance cart just outside the westside entrance of Milwaukee County Stadium. Attempts to save the child were unsuccessful."The Milwaukee Brewers feel sadness beyond expression about the accident outside the stadium prior to today's game," Brewers Director of Communications Laureal Prieb said in an official statement. "An investigation is underway to review the accident. The Brewers express their deepest sympathy to the family of the victim."

The child's name was not immediately released.
