Twin Cities Honor Law Enforcement on 9-11 Anniversary

The afternoon game on Sunday, Sept. 11, was a day to remember in the Twin Cities as the Minnesota Twins and the Cleveland Indians honored and recognized Minnesota law enforcement and paid tribute to those who died on the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks. Great weather was on hand as more than 20,300 were in attendance for Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.

Before the game, representatives from the Minnesota Law Enforcement Memorial Association, Minnesota Sheriffs Association and the Concerns of Police Survivors’ (C.O.P.S.) Minnesota Chapter gathered at home plate as the St. Paul Police Department Honor Guard presented the colors during the national anthem. The Minnesota Twins Territory Flag was raised and saluted by the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association’s Minnesota Chapter.

The Minnesota Twins salute law enforcement and thank everyone for attending and supporting the annual event. The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund would like to give special thanks to Luis Breazeal and Sam Henschen and to the Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association for going above and beyond and making this a great event.

Other NLEOMF events that took place on Sunday, Sept. 11, included games with the New York Yankees and the Houston Astros. For the latest in law enforcement appreciation sporting events visit www.lawmemorial.org/sports.
