MILWAUKEE (AP) - The smell of brats will soon be wafting from the parking lots at Miller Park as tailgaters celebrate the Milwaukee Brewers’ home opener.

Those tailgaters will likely huddle close to their grills with temperatures in the mid-40s Monday. Forecasters expect rain will stay away until after the game. First pitch is at 1:10 p.m.

Stadium gates will open at 10:40 a.m. New Major League Baseball procedures will be in place for the first time. All fans will be cycled through metal detectors before their tickets are scanned. Cellphones, cameras, keys and other metal objects will set off the detectors.

Wisconsin Badgers fans traveling to a friend’s house or bars could mix with home opener traffic after the game ends at Miller Park later Monday.
