The New York Yankees honored fallen North Las Vegas police detective Chad Parque during their game Tuesday.
The North Las Vegas Police Department thanked the Yankees in a tweet for the tribute to Parque on their billboard.
He loved the Yankees and always dreamed of attending a game, the tweet said. Now he has.
Parque, a 10-year veteran of the department, died after suffering critical injuries in a head-on collision with a car traveling the wrong way on Martin Luther King Boulevard in early January.

The Yankees won their game against the Cincinnati Reds 4-2.
