DETROIT (AP) -- Police in Detroit have a plan to make sure the area around Comerica Park is safe for the thousands of baseball fans coming downtown to watch the World Series. But city officials are not tipping their hand on what they're going to do.

Interim Police Chief Chester Logan told reporters Friday that more than 20 law enforcement agencies will work with his officers when the Tigers host the San Francisco Giants beginning Saturday in Detroit for game 3 of the best-of-seven series.

Logan said "close to 100,000 people" will be downtown Sunday for the Detroit Lions afternoon football game at Ford Field and game 4 of the World Series that night.

He also said no officers would be pulled from Detroit neighborhoods for patrols in and around downtown.
