The Milwaukee Brewers have set up a locker in their Spring Training clubhouse dedicated to Officer Matthew Rittner, who was killed in the line of duty as he executed a narcotics and firearms related search warrant.

Adam McCalvy—Brewers beat writer for MLB.com—snapped a picture and posted it to Twitter with the caption, "The Brewers set up a locker in their new Spring Training clubhouse in memory of Matthew Rittner, the Milwaukee Police Department officer killed in the line of duty last week."

"There is a locker in the Brewers' Spring Training clubhouse with a name you won't find on any roster," McCalvy wrote on MLB.com, "The navy blue jersey with "RITTNER" stitched across the top serves as a quiet tribute to Matthew Rittner, the fallen Milwaukee Police Department officer who was laid to rest on Wednesday, on the same day his favorite team reported to camp."

Rittner had served with the Milwaukee Police Department for 17 years. He is survived by his wife and child.
