Here’s your chance to win tickets to attend Derek Jeter’s Baseball Hall of Fame induction

Attention Derek Jeter fans!

The former New York Yankees all-star shortstop is scheduled to be inducted in the National Baseball Hall of Fame this summer and baseball fans will have the chance to attend the event.

That’s because Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation announced it is auctioning two VIP tickets and accommodations to attend the 2021 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony as part of its virtual fundraiser, Give With Purpose.

Jeter was supposed to go into the Hall of Fame last summer, but the event was canceled because of the pandemic.

All bids through the Give With Purpose fundraiser and auction will support Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation and its programs that help youth to rise above negative influences, lead healthy lives, and achieve their greatest potential.

Jeter created Turn 2 during his rookie season with the Yankees in 1996, which has since awarded more than $30 million to create and support

Christmas train tickets selling out leaving families stranded over festive period

On top of this, trains, flights and coaches will all be running at reduced capacities due to ongoing social distancing measures.  Tickets have nearly sold out across some long-distance routes.

On booking website Trainline, at the time of publication, tickets from London to Newcastle were already incredibly limited for Dec 23, with only a few seats remaining on most journeys.

Tickets were close to selling out for many journeys from  London to Edinburgh on the same date, as were tickets for trips from London to Cardiff, particularly in first-class carriages.

As usual, there will be no trains running on Christmas Day itself, and a very limited number of services running on Boxing Day.

Kansas City Chiefs to begin selling playoff tickets next week

With a playoff berth and the AFC West nearly in hand, beginning next week, the Kansas City Chiefs will start selling tickets to potential home games during the 2020 NFL playoffs.

All season long, the Chiefs have operated at a capacity reduced to 22% of the typical capacity at Arrowhead Stadium. With COVID-19 cases on the rise, the franchise will continue these capacity restrictions throughout the playoffs.

That means there will only be a limited number of tickets available for home playoff games. Chiefs team president Mark Donovan encouraged fans to attend despite the reduced capacity.

“Even with a reduced capacity, our fans have made a noticeable difference for our team. We really appreciate their commitment throughout the season,” Donovan said. “We have a lot of plans to make this a memorable postseason while supporting our ultimate goal to ‘Run It Back.’”

Here’s how everything with the upcoming playoff ticket

ICU nurses caring for COVID-19 patients still slammed by parking tickets

MANHATTAN — Geovanni Perez, a hospital ICU nurse who’s been working during the COVID19 pandemic on the Upper East Side, said when the infection numbers dipped several months ago, traffic agents started bombarding his colleagues with parking tickets.

The problem continues to the present day, he said.

“I’ve had more than a thousand dollars in parking tickets in the last few months,” Perez, a registered nurse, told PIX11 News. “Leave the nurses alone!”

PIX11 News first became aware of a ticket problem on the Upper East Side in April.

Nurses at one private hospital who stopped taking the subway to work, fearful of more exposure to the deadly virus, were using their cars — and hopeful that the city’s suspension of some parking rules would apply to them.

The department of transportation told PIX11 News at the time it distributed 13,200 green “parking placards” to public and private hospitals to

Officers wrote 1,779 tickets between July and November under the state’s “Operation Hard Hat,” which stations state police officers along the Empire State’s highways dressed as construction workers to catch violating drivers in maintenance and emergency operation zones.

It’s nearly a 70-percent increase compared to 2019’s program, under which 1,048 total tickets were given out.

“Building and maintaining a 21st Century transportation system cannot be done without the work performed by highway construction workers and it’s imperative we do all we can to make their jobs as safe as possible,” said Gov. Andrew Cuomo in a statement Thursday. 

“Preventing tragedies takes everyone working together, so while the state will continue to crack down on those who endanger those working on our roadways, I
