NEW SECURITY PROCEDURES TO BE INSTALLED AT MILLER PARK

In coordination with new procedures established by Major League Baseball, today we announced that all fans will be screened by metal detectors on Thursday, September 11 against the Miami Marlins and again on Saturday, September 13 against the Cincinnati Reds.

Fans are encouraged to arrive early on those dates to accommodate the screenings.

The Brewers have screened fans at select gates this year for multiple games, but this will mark the first full-screening of all fans attending games. For other remaining regular season home games, the Brewers will continue to scan at select gates.

Fans will need to remove all metal from their pockets before walking through the metal detectors. This includes items such as phones and keys; however, wallets, shoes and belts will not need to be removed. Bags will continue to be checked at the gates. The list of prohibited items at Miller Park has not altered, but fans are reminded that the Brewers will not hold any prohibited items. Fans will have the option of taking the item back to their vehicle or the team will dispose of it for them.

The new protocols are part of a broader security program initiated this season by Major League Baseball. The process of screening all fans at all games will be fully implemented for the Postseason and for all Major League Baseball games in 2015.

Cait what about people with implanted pacemakers and the metal detectors?

Q: I have a medical device that sets off metal detectors. What is going to happen to me at the gate?
A: Today’s security technology has evolved to the point where certain personal effects and conditions can be accounted for and eliminated as alarm triggers. When the need arises, fans can be subject to security follow-up including screening with a hand-held wand or other alternative screening procedures
