White Sox honoring Chicago Police for NATO Summit performance



NATO Summit weekend has come and gone from Chicago, and the pervasive police presence kept protest disturbances and incidents to a minimum. There was a lot of talk beforehand about how much the event would impact the lives of Chicagoans, about how much everything would be inconvienced, about all the security threats.

However, there were no major incidents, and just a bunch of arrests. No real civic unrest. And the Chicago White Sox are going to honor the CPD before their game versus the Twins.

From 670 The Score:

The team will recognize the police in a special in-game tribute during Wednesday night’s game against the Minnesota Twins. Sworn members of the Chicago Police Department will also be offered two complimentary tickets to one of 10 select White Sox games this season.

“Chicago Police officers have demonstrated supreme dedication, professionalism and training,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said.  “This is an incredible gesture by the White Sox to honor the commitment of our men and women in uniform, and I extend my most sincere gratitude to this tremendous Chicago organization.”


Speaking of 670 The Score, here’s another link from them, It’s a photo of President Barack Obama tossing the football around at Soldier Field Sunday night during the working dinner at NATO Summit. What a thrill for the world’s most powerful Chicago Bears fan.
