Flash mob gang attacks impact Cubs and Sox

According to an email sent in by a Chicago News Report reader, the violent gang attacks in the downtown area are negatively impacting visiting baseball teams, playing the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox.
Apparently, visiting teams are being warned about the African-American mobs in Streeterville, the Gold Coast, along the Magnificent Mile, and on the Near North Side.
Here’s an excerpt from that email:
"I was watching Chicago Tribune Live this afternoon (on Comcast SportsNet), and the host David Kaplan said he heard that Major League Baseball is telling the visiting teams (whether they are playing the Sox or Cubs) to be alert of Michigan Avenue 'flash mobs'."
