As part of Major League Baseball’s initiative to standardize security procedures at all 30 parks, visitors are required to be screened via metal detectors before entering the Stadium. The increased security measures are the result of MLB’s continuing work with the Department of Homeland Security and are designed to elevate and standardize security practices across the game. The added security measures are in addition to bag checks that are conducted at all MLB ballparks.
As a result, the Yankees strongly encourage all visitors to budget extra time for arrival and entry to the Stadium for all home games throughout the 2015 season and future seasons.
