Extra Security Will Be in Play For World Series In St. Louis

By Kevin Lavery, KWMU

St. Louis, MO – St. Louis Police Chief Joe Mokwa says gates will open at Busch Stadium two and a half hours before the first pitch so that security screeners have time to inspect attendees.

A no-fly zone will also be in effect over the stadium, cameras are in place and a large contingent of police officers will patrol the area.

Mokwa says he sees no reason to impose restrictions on alcohol, as Boston officials have considered:

"St. Louis fans have shown that they can drink responsibly and there's no reason to be concerned," Mokwa said. "But we will have sufficient police personnel on the beat so that if we need to, we can certainly curtail any kind of misbehavior."

The security measures will be in place for each of the three games in St. Louis.

Game 3 begins Tuesday at 7 p.m.
