DETROIT (AP) - Tigers fans will pass through metal detectors while entering Comerica Park this season, part of a new set of security measures the team is putting in place.

Major League Baseball has told its 30 teams they must implement security screening for fans by 2015, either with hand-held metal detection or walk-through magnetometers. The Tigers announced Monday that fans should arrive early this season to allow enough time to walk through the metal detectors. Gates open just over two hours before the start of each game.

Detroit’s security measures also include restricting traffic on streets around the downtown ballpark.

Fans will be subject to bag searches, as in the past.
