Aldermen won’t get free tickets to White Sox home opener
CHICAGO — Aldermen who want to go to the White Sox home opener on April 3 need to pay their own way.
The Sox offered aldermen and other city officials tickets to the game and a pre-game cocktail reception.
The opening day freebie has been a Sox tradition for decades.
But the city’s Board of Ethics say the ticket is worth more than $50 and is prohibited.
Last year, the ethics board forced the Cubs to pull an offer to let aldermen purchase World Series tickets at face value.
