Dodger Stadium to feature metal detectors

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers will phase in the use of walk-through metal detectors at Dodger Stadium this season, beginning with Monday night's game against the Marlins. Major League Baseball will require all ballparks to use the security technology beginning in 2015, the result of the league's work with the Department of Homeland Security.

The Dodgers will use the detectors at limited gates for a select number of games this season. Fans will pass through the detectors before their tickets are scanned and will be required to remove cell phones and other large metal objects prior to entering, but they will not be required to remove shoes or belts. Fans will have the option of being checked with a hand-held device.

The Dodgers will continue allowing bags, backpacks and purses that conform to MLB's size limitations at the stadium. All bags, including women's purses, will continue to be subject to inspection.
