As part of the Yankees’ new ‘Honor Row’ initiative, a group of surviving children and widows/widowers of fallen New York City police officers will be guests in the Judge’s Chambers for the Yankees’ 1:05 p.m. game vs. the Oakland Athletics on Saturday, May 12.

The Yankees will be teaming up with the New York City Police Department this season to host the families of police officers killed in the line of duty.

In honor of the legacy of these fallen heroes and over the course of 10 home games this season, the Yankees will provide Line of Duty families with complimentary tickets.

New in 2018, the Yankees’ Honor Row is a monthly initiative that honors community-based organizations committed to making a positive difference by hosting them in the Judge’s Chambers seating section at Yankee Stadium. Each group of 18 takes in the game from the Judge’s Chambers and receives official Judge’s Chambers robes and foam gavels.

The first recipients of the Yankees Honor Row were a group of Bronx public school students (grades 5-8) and teachers, recognized for their achievements and commitment to leadership, academics, community service and teamwork, as part of April’s Bronx Education All Star Day.
