CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) – Baseball fans should expect to go through a metal detector to see their team play in 2014.

Major League Baseball security director John Skinner says all 30 teams are expected to screen all fans entering ballparks next season. He says some aspects of the screening will be left to teams, but the commissioner’s office plans to recommend walk-through metal detectors.

Skinner was speaking Friday at the Ivy Sports Symposium at Harvard Law School. He appeared on a panel called “Preparing for the Worst: Crisis Management.” Among the other panelists was Tom Grilk, the executive director of the Boston Athletic Association, which organizes the Boston Marathon.

Three people were killed and more than were 260 wounded when two bombs exploded at the marathon finish line in April. Since then, most sports events and facilities have increased security.
