SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – San Francisco Giants fans headed to a game at AT&T Park this weekend are encouraged to arrive earlier than usual because of increased security at the ballpark, team officials said Friday.

The Giants are hosting a three-game series against the San Diego Padres starting at 7:15 p.m. today.

The games are the first at home for the Giants since the bombing at the Boston Marathon on Monday that killed three people and injured scores of others.

Team officials said there will be mandatory bag inspections and wanding at all gates into the ballpark, which opens two hours prior to the first pitch.

Oakland police also stepped up their visibility earlier this week at Oakland A’s baseball and Golden State Warriors basketball games in the days following the deadly Boston bombing.

A fireworks show is planned at AT&T Park after Friday night’s Giants game.

The Giants’ series against the Padres continues at 6:05 p.m. Saturday and 1:05 p.m. Sunday.
