Major League Baseball is asking all teams to increase security for next season, including screening each fan at the entrance, according to an Associated Press report.

The league's security director, John Skinner, is recommending that teams install walk through metal detectors at each gate, although teams may opt for other methods if they wish.

The move is part of a larger effort to increase security at sporting events after 3 people were killed by a terrorist attack at the 2013 Boston Marathon. The NFL changed its policy regarding bringing bags into stadiums, so that all belongings must be carried in a see through pack this season.
