The body of Todd Keeling, 48, was discovered in a large refrigerator at SunTrust Park before a Braves game on Tuesday. Keeling was at the park installing an invention he created that allowed beer to flow more efficiently. Authorities don't yet know what caused Keeling's death.

According to police reports, other workers found Keeling and pulled him out of the cooler. They performed CPR but it was too late for the father of four. Keeling's death has left his family devastated. Keeling's aunt said that it was his dream to have his invention used at multiple stadiums and he had worked on perfecting it since graduating college. 

The Atlanta Braves released the following statement:

 The Atlanta Braves are deeply saddened by the passing of Todd Keeling. We admired the passion he had for both his company and his product. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
