"Major League Baseballs security department will continue to track this matter in consultation with the Nationals and under the guidance of the local authorities." The postponement was announced shortly after 3 p.m., about four hours before scheduled start. "We have to be in contact with the federal authorities, the state and D.C. authorities to have a co-ordinated effort, and then whenever you cancel a game, MLB is involved and we have to go through the correct procedures for that," Rizzo said.

Police activity was visible around the stadium, and sirens could be heard throughout the afternoon.
