The White Sox, heroes to baseball fans across Chicago, are honoring the real heroes during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In honor of National Nurses Day, the White Sox joined sports leagues and athletes around the world in replacing the names on their jerseys with the names of healthcare workers, who have done so much while on the front lines of the global fight against the coronavirus.
The White Sox tweeted out pictures of Tim Anderson, Carlos Rodon and Yasmani Grandal honoring healthcare workers with names taped over their jerseys.

Hayley, I am proud to wear your name on my back! The @NHLBlackhawks are incredibly grateful for you and all your fellow nurses in this fight. I know you battled COVID yourself and are now donating your antibodies to help find a treatment. You're truly a hero! #TheRealHeroes pic.twitter.com/UYuwtwvM5x
