With the tenth anniversary of 9/11 this Sunday, the Washington Nationals are encouraging fans to arrive earlier than they’re used to. This is due to an increase in security precaustions surrounding Sunday’s day of rememberance.

According to the Nationals, fans should prepare to arrive early and expect slow entry into the ballpark on Saturday and Sunday. Fan are encouraged to keep in mind that limited entry points will be available for getting into the park as well. The center field gates are scheduled to open at 4:30 on Saturday and 11 a.m. on Sunday.

Fans driving to park should prepare for vehicle checks in parking areas.

Additionally, no outside beverages or liquids of any kind will be permitted into the ballpark. Food items of any kind are strongly discouraged.

So be smart, Washington. Use your heads. I know you want to bring in that sealed bottled water this weekend, but if you try, you’re only going to hold up the line.
