(KMOV.com) – The first metal detectors will be installed at Busch Stadium Tuesday night.
All fans who walk through Gate 4 will have to walk through metal detectors. The team said there may be some delays for fans entering the ballpark while workers get used to the new system.
“These metal detectors are much like ones you see at the airport but our rules aren’t going to be as stringent as the airport. Certainly you will be able to leave your shoes and your belts on, but we will ask you to take out your wallets, your cell phone, eye glass holders, large metal objects, and anything you might have on your person,” said Joe Abernathy with the Cardinals.
The Cardinals said they plan to add metal detectors to at least one other gate by the end of the season and have them at every gate by the start of the 2015 season.
