SET Teams Provide Security At All-Star Game Activities

Jefferson National Expansion Memorial

National Park News

Special event teams from the Midwest, Intermountain, and Northeast Regions were deployed to the park last week due to the number of events associated with the All-Star Game throughout the downtown Saint Louis area and the related nationwide media attention. On July 11th, the park hosted the Major League Baseball All-Star Game charity concert with Sheryl Crow and Elvis Costello. Local media outlets reported crowds of 50,000 for the concert. Other events associated with Major League Baseball included a special exhibit on baseball’s expansion west and a ‘historic’ pick-up game featuring traditional uniforms and rules. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and Acting Director Dan Wenk also visited the park. Their visit included a tour of the park grounds and ride to the top of the Arch before going to the Old Court House for a private meeting and subsequent press conference.
