CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago fans likely won’t only be booing the San Francisco Giants when the Cubs open the playoffs Friday night.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports (https://bit.ly/2d76afx) the Board of Ethics has ruled that city aldermen and city officials who take advantage of an offer from the Cubs to purchase playoff tickets at face value must do so in their official capacity and accompany guests to all games - and be publicly announced to the crowd.

Any city official who doesn’t comply risks violating the ethics ordinance. Cubs spokesman Julian Green said the team plans to support the Board of opinion by displaying the names of aldermen in attendance on the video board.

All 50 aldermen and state lawmakers who represent Chicago districts have been offered the right to purchase the tickets.
