MILWAUKEE (AP) The late Darryl Hamilton has been remembered with a moment of silence before Tuesday night's game between two of his former teams, the New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers.

Police on Monday said the 50-year-old Hamilton was killed in a murder-suicide in a suburban Houston home. An initial investigation determined Hamilton was shot several times and that a woman in the home died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The former center fielder had worked for the MLB Network since 2013.

Hamilton's 13-year major league career began in 1988 in Milwaukee, where he played all or parts of seven seasons.

His career ended with the Mets in 2001. He was a member of the Mets team that reached the 2000 World Series.

''Major League Baseball has lost a true talent, and the Brewers have lost a true friend,'' the Miller Park public address announcer said before the crowd fell silent.

Hamilton filled in as an analyst on Brewers radio broadcasts in 2014. He worked a few broadcasts with Craig Counsell, who replaced Ron Roenicke as Milwaukee's manager in May.

''The thing I remember is he was a pretty good player and he had a smile on his face every time he was on the field,'' Counsell said. ''He was always happy to be at the ballpark and in a good mood.''
