New York Yankees Host Law Enforcement Night in the Bronx

The constant mist on a cold night in May couldn’t
keep New York Yankees fans from one of the biggest rivalries in sports. With
the Boston Red Sox in town for the first time this season, scores of people
traveled from all around the tri-state area for an exciting game on Friday, May
6, down to the final out.

Hundreds of fans were also there in support of local law
enforcement, as the Yankees hosted Law Enforcement Appreciation Night at Yankee
Stadium. Fans traveled from as far away as Texas to watch the Yankees beat the
Red Sox 3-2. They also saw a little more action that they had anticipated in
the ninth inning as Red Sox DH David Ortiz was struck out with bases loaded,
blowing a chance to tie or even win the game. An angry Ortiz, who had scored a
home run in the first inning, immediately ran back on the field and accosted
the umpire, giving everyone a story to take home that night.
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund would
like to thank the New York Yankees for the opportunity to share this game with
the local law enforcement, their families and supporters. A special thanks to
David Sibelman and the rest of the Group Sales & Service Department. 
The Yankees will host another Law Enforcement Appreciation
event on Sunday, September 11, 2016. Special discounted tickets will go on sale
later this summer.
