Aug. 16 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Yankees are getting a jump on a Major League Baseball mandate that all stadiums install metal detectors before the 2015 season.

Starting with a homestand next week, fans at select Yankee Stadium entrances will go through metal detectors, according to an e-mailed statement. The team is asking fans to budget extra time for the added security.

The MLB-wide decree is part of baseball’s work with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to create uniform standards for all 30 teams.

“We want our fans to feel safe in Yankee Stadium,” Yankees Chief Operating Officer Lonn Trost said in an e-mailed release. “Our staff is dedicated to maintaining the highest security standards possible.”

Fans will need to remove mobile phones and large metal objects from their pockets before passing through the detectors.
