Wrigley Field personnel are increasing security measures at tonight’s game in light of the Boston Marathon bombings.
Chicago police will have a canine unit outside Wrigley and all garbage cans outside have been removed. Also, a “stepped up” police presence will be in place.
A spokesperson for the Chicago Cubs said in a statement, “We are running at normal operations but there are some security enhancements we will make for the remaining games this homestand.
All ballpark personnel will operate with a heightened awareness. If anything looks suspicious, personnel are directed to notify supervisors.”
