MLB plans to increase security screening at ballparks in 2014
According to the Associated Press, Major League Baseball plans to increase security measures starting next season. Every club will be expected to screen fans prior to entering the ballpark. Some aspects of the screening process will be left to the individual teams, but the league will recommend walk-through metal detectors.
"It's the reality, unfortunately, of this world," said John Skinner, MLB's security director. "Ultimately, it will happen."
MLB will make a presentation to each team about increasing security during the Winter Meetings next month. Plans are still being finalized, however.
