    Entry and Carry-In Policy

    MLB-Mandated Procedure for Entry to Yankee Stadium

    As part of Major League Baseball's initiative to standardize security procedures at all 30 Major League parks, all visitors are required to be screened via metal detectors before entering Yankee Stadium. The increased security measures are the result of MLB's continuing work with the Department of Homeland Security and are designed to elevate and standardize security practices across the game. The added security measures are in addition to bag checks that are conducted at all MLB ballparks.

    Metal detectors are located at all Yankee Stadium gates, and all visitors to the Stadium will be subject to screening. Once visitors have been screened and had their bags checked, they will have their tickets scanned.

    Before proceeding through metal detectors, visitors will be asked to remove cell phones, cameras and any large metal objects from their pockets and place them in a small plastic container for inspection. Additionally, all bags and their interiors will be visually inspected by security personnel at a screening table alongside the metal detector. Please note that only MLB-compliant bags (soft-sided, measuring 16 inches by 16 inches by 8 inches or smaller) will be permitted inside the Stadium. Individuals will be able to watch their belongings throughout the screening process and can pick them up at the end of the table once they have proceeded through the metal detector. The removal of belts, shoes and jackets is not required.

    Per MLB requirements, all visitors, including children, must be screened. Infants and toddlers may be carried through walk-through metal detectors, and children who are able to walk may be asked to go through on their own. Individuals who are unable to utilize a walk-through metal detector or who opt not to use one have the option of being checked with a hand-held metal detector or receiving a physical pat-down.

    If a walk-through metal detector alerts a security officer to the presence of items that require further inspection, visitors will be directed to the side, where they will be screened via a hand-held metal detector or physical pat-down. When the items in question are discovered, individuals will be asked to display them and/or allow a security officer to examine them. At this time, a security officer will determine whether or not these items will be permitted in Yankee Stadium.

    Any item or property that could affect the safety of the Stadium, its occupants or its property shall not be permitted into the Stadium. The Yankees reserve the right to prohibit or require removal of any items at their sole and absolute discretion. Any person that could affect the safety of the Stadium, its occupants or its property shall be denied entry.

    PROHIBITED ITEMS

    Guests may not carry the following items into the Stadium:

    • any bag larger than 16 inches by 16 inches by 8 inches

    Rainout/Reschedule Policy for Regular Season Games

    If a game is not played or is called before it has become a regulation game, as defined by Major League Baseball (i.e., 4 1/2 innings if the Yankees are ahead and five full innings if the visiting team is ahead or the game is tied), due to weather, an act of God or any other reason, the ticket will constitute a rain check that can be either: (a) used for admission to the rescheduled game, if any, subject to certain doubleheader limitations; or (b) exchanged for a same-priced ticket for any regular season Yankees home game within 12 months of the originally scheduled game, subject to availability. For the Yankees' complete rainout/reschedule policy, please click here or call (212) YANKEES.

    In no event will the Yankees be liable to the ticket holder and/or ticket purchaser for any direct, indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages or for lost profits, revenues or business opportunities even if the Yankees have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

    Recycling and Composting
