Illinois gives Ditka special license plates

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - The state of Illinois is honoring Chicago Bears legend Mike Ditka with his own special license plates.

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White presented Ditka with two specialty plates. Both are navy blue and orange and have the Bears logo. One says "Ditka" and the other has his number "89."

The Chicago Bears are to retire Ditka's number at Monday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

White says the license plates are a "fitting tribute" to Ditka.
