**FILE** In this photo taken Wednesday, April 24, 2013, a security guard checks the backpack of a fan entering AT&T Park before a baseball game between the San Francisco Giants and the Arizona Diamondbacks in San Francisco. Major League Baseball's previously scheduled security meeting in New York took on added importance in the aftermath of the marathon bombs. Each team sets its own security standards, although clubs might consider cutting the size of the general major league limitation on bags from 16x16x8 inches to something less.(AP Photo/Jeff Chiu)
