Last night we watched the Cardinals opening day ceremonies on tv and it soon became evident that we were thankful to be at home. Lots of people we know who had tickets to the game found themselves in the longest, most massive entry lines imaginable. All this was due in large part to new Major League Baseball security rules.
One friend wrote on facebook she had been in line for an hour and it was mayhem. Here are a couple of pictures taken by KSDK reporter Casey Nolen.
Here is a link to a story on the new security measures and written as warning to those going to Spring Training games, but the same rules apply now. Also no backpacks, any bags are recommended to be see through. Bags will all be searched. Etc.
Hopefully the employees who work at the entrance will get used to the security rules and fans will keep this in mind and go earlier.
