|Chicago Police to Receive Free White Sox Tickets
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago police officers will get free tickets to a White Sox game as a thank you for their service during the NATO summit.
Chicago White Sox Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf announced Tuesday that all sworn Chicago officers will receive two complimentary tickets to one of ten select games this season. The team also plans to honor Chicago police officers during Wednesday's game at U.S. Cellular Field against the Minnesota Twins.
Reinsdorf says Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel asked the White Sox to help the city honor the police officers. Reinsdorf called the police "true Chicago heroes."
