OAKLAND (KCBS) – Fans of the Oakland A’s are being asked to arrive to the ballpark a bit earlier, after new security measures were implemented Thursday at O.co Coliseum.
Starting with Thursday’s game against the Minnesota Twins, fans will be greeted with a new walk-through metal detection system.
“Once everybody gets the hang of it, it won’t delay you getting into the ballpark at all,” said Oakland A’s spokesman Bob Rose. “I do think for the first couple of games, it will take a little longer for the adjustment. But I think other than that, it should be seamless.”
