NEW YORK — Yankee Stadium is adding metal detectors at some of the venue’s entrances as part of Major League Baseball’s efforts to standardize security at all stadiums.
MLB has worked closely with the Department of Homeland Security to standardize security practices at the stadium, 7online.com reports.
Fans will be asked to remove cell phones and all large metal objects from their pockets before walking through the metal detectors. Additionally, they will undergo bag checks.
Those who choose not to go through a walk-through metal detector will have the option of being manually checked with a hand-held detector.
By 2015, all game-day entrances to Yankee Stadium will have metal detectors.
