St. Louis police to increase security for baseball playoffs

ST. LOUIS (AP) Baseball fans converging on the city's downtown for the playoffs series between the Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs can expect a beefed-up police presence, St. Louis' police chief pledged Thursday, two weeks after a shooting near Busch Stadium left a fan unable to walk and spawned unease about downtown safety.

Calling Cardinals playoffs games a fall ritual that's proven safe for millions of the club's fans over decades, Police Chief Sam Dotson declined to specify the number of officers he planned to deploy in uniform or civilian clothes for the best-of-five series that starts Friday in St. Louis. Game 2 on Saturday also will be at Busch Stadium.

"You will be safe downtown," Dotson said during a news conference outside the stadium, saying publicity about the Sept. 25 shooting that wounded Army veteran Christopher Sanna about six blocks from the ballpark "certainly highlighted the importance of police presence" during the Cardinals' home playoff games.
