MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minnesota Twins officials stated Monday afternoon that Target Field will be safe for Monday night’s game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in light of the explosions at the Boston Marathon.

According to Twins management, “additional protective detail” will be in place for the game, which starts at 7:10 p.m.

Twins President Dave St. Peters sent out a tweet Monday afternoon to assure fans that his organization will make safety a top priority.

“Despite tragedy in Boston, MLB games are still on for tonight. @Twins security, MPLS and MetTransit Police team to make #TargetField safe,” St. Peters said.

Management added that before every Twins game several security measures are enacted, including the checking of all garbage cans, a sweep of the stadium with bomb-sniffing dogs, communication with Minneapolis Police and the Department of Homeland Security and inspection and closing of the stadium’s loading dock.
