PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The Portland Sea Dogs are following the lead of Major League ballparks by installing metal detectors to screen fans entering the ballpark.

Major League Baseball required metal detectors at each of its ballparks in 2015, and the Sea Dogs decided to follow suit at Thursday’s home opener.

The Portland Press Herald reports that fans don’t seem to be overly concerned about devices that aim to keep weapons out of the park.

Roger Knight of South Portland, a Sea Dogs season-ticket holder, says he’s surprised the team didn’t take the step sooner.
