BOSTON (AP) — Boston officials encouraged fans Tuesday to be responsible and respectful as they cheer on the Red Sox in World Series games against the St. Louis Cardinals at Fenway Park this week.
Sports championship celebrations in Boston in the past decade have resulted in violence and even death.
"Please help us to keep you safe and don't allow anyone to tarnish the image of Boston Strong," said Boston Police Superintendent Daniel Linskey, using the phrase that resonated after the April 15 bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon that killed three and wounded more than 260.
Linskey said Boston police have met with bar owners and will meet with college and university officials to talk about curbing underage drinking and keeping students safe. He said that since the bombings, people have stepped up and done what officials have asked in the name of safety.
He says there will be enhanced police presence for the first two games and everyone will be working if there is a clinching game in Boston.
