Yankee Stadium to have metal detectors starting Tuesday
There are already a handful of ballparks with metal detectors. Oakland and Detroit I know of, but there may be others. As of Tuesday Yankee Stadium will join their ranks. All of this is to get ready for 2015, when MLB will require them everywhere. Here is the statement from Yankees COO Lonn Trost:
I can’t recall any incidents at ballparks in my lifetime which would have been prevented by metal detectors, but I suppose that’s where we are now as a society.
