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 Guests are required to be screened via metal detectors before entering Yankee Stadium. This procedure is a result of MLB's continuing work with the Department of Homeland Security and is in addition to the bag-check policy in place (for more information on the bag policy, please click here).
Metal detectors are located at all Stadium gates. Once Guests have been screened and have had their MLB-compliant bag - and small soft-sided personal item - checked, they will have their ticket scanned. Yankee Stadium management strongly urges all Guests to budget additional time for entry into the Stadium when planning their visits.
Before proceeding through metal detectors, Guests will be required to remove cellphones, cameras and any large metal objects from their pockets and place them in a small plastic container, which will be visually inspected along with their MLB-compliant bag and small soft-sided personal item, by security personnel at a screening table alongside the metal detector. Only MLB-compliant bags - presently soft-sided and 16 inches by 16 inches by 8 inches or smaller - and small soft-sided personal items will be admitted. A Guest's belongings will remain in proximity to the Guest throughout the screening process, and the Guest can pick up his or her belongings at the end of the screening table once he or she has proceeded through the metal detector. Presently, the removal of belts, jackets and shoes is not required.
Pursuant to MLB requirements, all Guests, including children, must be screened. Infants and toddlers may be carried through the metal detectors; those children who are able to walk may be asked to walk through on their own. Those Guests who choose not to or who are unable to go through a walk-through metal detector have the option of being manually checked with a hand-held metal detector or a physical pat-down.
If the device detects items that require further inspection, Guests 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, Guests will be asked to present them for further inspection. Any item or property that could affect the safety of the Stadium, its occupants or its property shall not be permitted into the Stadium. Yankee Stadium management reserves the right to prohibit or require removal of any items at its sole and absolute discretion. Any person that could affect the safety of the Stadium, its occupants or its property shall be denied entry.
Through its partnership with CLEAR, during Yankees home games and New York City FC home matches, Yankee Stadium management continues to provide Guests with expedited-access entry points. For more information, please click here.

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.
