The Atlanta Braves paid tribute to their longtime public address announcer, Casey Motter, on Monday night before the team's first home game since his death last Wednesday.

Following a video tribute to Motter, a moment of silence was observed before the game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Motter, 53, had been the Braves' public address announcer since 2007 and worked through the team's previous homestand, which ended on June 26.

Sam Franco, who has worked as the public address announcer for some University of Georgia athletics events, handled duties for Monday night.

The cause of Motter's death has not been made public.
