Houston sports fans urged to stay alert this weekend

As thousands of fans pour into Minute Maid Park to catch the ballgame, security is on the minds of some with the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks around the corner.

"I'm glad they have security and I think about it a little bit," said Bob Bauschke, who was going to an Astros game.

"I've been to the Astros game for the past five years and safety is pretty good," Astros fan John Burnett said.

Local law enforcement is also on high alert and always monitoring, especially for the several major sporting events scheduled this weekend. That includes everything from the Texans season opener to the Astros and the University of Houston football game.

"It's always a security risk, so there's a lot of work that goes into planning and doing exercises to ensure that we in law enforcement are doing the best job to keep everyone safe," said Alan Rosen, constable of Precinct 1 in Harris County.

Although police and other law enforcement are highly visible at big sporting events and patrols are often increased, authorities said they still need the public's help. If someone sees something, they should say something.

"We still rely heavily on the public," Rosen said. "The public is our true partner because, of course, law enforcement can't be everywhere."

"Be careful, but enjoy. You're here once," said Carol Bauschke, a Cubs fan.
