CHICAGO -- Police are sweeping through Wrigley Field with dogs after officials ordered everyone to leave the iconic ballpark.

Chicago Police spokesman Thomas Sweeney says the department received a telephone threat Sunday that prompted officers to investigate. He declined to provide further details about the nature of the threat.

Security told the media to leave the press box right after the Cubs' 2-0 victory over the Giants, but declined to provide a reason.
