PHOENIX -

The Diamondbacks have increased security at Chase Field in downtown Phoenix, as they play their first home game since the Boston bombings.

The D'backs say after the bombings, the team reviewed their security measures and felt comfortable fans would be safe, but they were prepared to add any extra measures needed.

A lot of those measures are things most of the public won't see. 

"As ballparks, as arenas, as stadiums we've heightened our awareness for the last several years since 9/11 to the point where we want to make sure the safety and security and comfort of our fans is a top priority," says Diamondbacks CEO Derrick Hall.

Hall says the D'backs organization reviews their security measures on a weekly basis.
