The team is currently on the road taking on the Milwaukee Brewers, but does intend to celebrate the musician’s life and contribution to music.

According to TMZ, a team representative stated, “I’m sure [the tribute] will include a lot of Prince music. I don’t know if it’ll happen, but we’re talking about instead of a moment of silence, having a moment of sexy.”

In addition to the purple lit stadium, the words “Goodnight Sweet Prince” is displayed on the Jumbotron.

Prince passed away at age 57 on April 21.
