Security increases in Boston for World Series

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON -

The World Series is back in Boston, and with the excitement comes extra focus on the safety of everyone around Fenway Park.

"We just ramp up our resources considerably and really stress the importance of our procedures," said Charles Cellucci, head of security at Fenway Park.

Cellucci said he's making sure that everyone entering the park is checked by security personnel. He said there'll be increased police presence and that helicopters would be flying overhead.

"The city's done a good job putting on extra police officers. It just shows how tough this city is. We're not going to be held down," said Jay Andrade of Tiverton.

It was just six months ago that terror struck the Boston Marathon just blocks away on Boylston Street. Everyone remembers the horror, but everyone also wants to prove that it isn't going to scare them.

"No, this isn't going to be a problem at all. Not the least bit concerned. It's just baseball. It's going to be a lot of fun," said Lorne MacLellan of Nova Scotia.

"It's everywhere. It's not just here. But obviously it's more sympathy or sorrow than scared or danger," said Scott Graham of St. Louis.

The World Series is a little different than the Boston Marathon because you can control spectators with tickets.

"Once everyone gets in the building we feel that everyone has been cleared and we control the access very well," Cellucci said.
