White Sox honor members of the Chicago Police Department

The Chicago White Sox will host and honor members of the Chicago Police Department for their service during the recent NATO Summit at Wednesday’s game at U.S. Cellular Field at 7:10 p.m.  Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, accompanied by Chicago police officers, will represent the department’s 12,500 members, as the White Sox present a special tribute to the Chicago Police Department during the seventh inning of the game.

The White Sox also will host the police officers on the field during batting practice before the game.

“This is a small way the White Sox can show gratitude to the men and women in uniform for their service to our city," said Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing.  "The White Sox are honored to recognize the Chicago Police Department, not only for their work during the NATO Summit, but for what they do in our communities and neighborhoods every day."

Mayor Rahm Emanuel asked the White Sox to join the city in honoring the outstanding work of the men and women of the Chicago Police Department.  To recognize their service, the White Sox announced today that all sworn members of the Chicago Police Department will be offered two complimentary tickets to one of 10 select White Sox games.  Details on how tickets can be redeemed will be communicated directly to the officers through the Chicago Police Department.
