In a tragic turn to the four-game series between the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals, reports that Reuben Porras of Newna, Ga., collapsed at Turner Field on Wednesday and later died at an area hospital.

Porras, 61, was setting up for MLB Network's broadcast of the Braves-Nationals game on Thursday when he collapsed.

Nationals head trainer Lee Kuntz and assistant trainer John Hsu administered aid until paramedics took Porras to a hospital, where he was declared dead of an apparent heart attack.
