The man was a third-party contractor and was found by a fellow worker, Officer Sarah O’Hara said.

When asked if foul play was suspected, O'Hara said: "This is still an active investigation so I am unable to speculate whether or not foul play is a factor."

She said the person’s identity would not be released until the family was notified.

O’Hara said the MLB’s Atlanta Braves are helping with the investigation.

The Braves game with the Cincinnati Reds went ahead as scheduled at 7:35 p.m., spokeswoman Beth Marshall said. The team is also scheduled to play the Reds Wednesday at 12:10 p.m.
