The New York Yankees will pay for the education of slain NYPD officer Rafael Ramos' two sons. Ramos, along with his partner Wenjian Liu, were ambushed in their patrol car in Brooklyn on Saturday. Liu did not have any children.
In 1982, the late Yankees owner George Steinbrenner established the Silver Shield Fund which was dedicated to paying the education costs of children of NYPD, FDNY and Port Authority employees who died in the line of duty.
This fund benefitted 700 children whose parents died during the attacks of September 11, 2001.
Today, this Red Sox fan is a Yankees fan.
