MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Brewers will be giving the family who lost a son in a drunk driving crash a chance to throw out the first pitch before a playoff game involving the team he loved the most.

Mike Kilar was to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Game two of the National League Championship Series between the Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals.

His son Treyton died when a drunk driver crashed into a vehicle he was riding in, just one month before his seventh birthday.

"That little boy could throw. His favorite team was the Brewers, of course, and Prince Fielder was his favorite player. He was lucky enough to have met him," his uncle, Joseph Jaskolski said.

Treyton was buried in a Brewers jersey.

Fielder was to catch Mike Kilar's first pitch Monday night.

The Kilars are attempting to build the Treyton Kilar Field of Dreams to honor him.  The Brewers said they are donating $10,000 to the Whitewater Community Foundation to help build the field.
