Boston prepares for busy day of baseball and Obama
BOSTON - Security officials in Boston are preparing for an extraordinary day of World Series baseball and politics in which a presidential visit may be the least disruptive event.
The Red Sox host the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night. The hometown team has a chance to win its third World Series in less than a decade. Hours earlier, President Obama is scheduled to deliver a talk on his embattled health care reform.
Obama is expected to be out of town an hour before the game begins, and officials say they're prepared for any postgame celebration if the Red Sox beat St. Louis.
Security measures include parking restrictions and rules forbidding entry to Fenway and the surrounding area after the seventh inning.
Police will also deploy more bomb-sniffing dogs and undercover officers.
