Twins move to single-compartment bag policy to save time at security checkpoint

Updated: July 04, 2019 03:10 PM

Beginning Friday, the Minnesota Twins will move to a single-compartment  bag policy in an effort to reduce security check times for both fans and staff.

Among the bags permited at all gates include purses, drawstring bags, clutch purses, diaper bags, single-compartment (tote) bags, single-compartment, soft-sided coolers, clear bags and Medically-necessary bags. Those nine-by-five-inches or smaller bags will qualify for no-bag 'express' lines, according to the Twins' website.


Backpacks, duffel bags, multi-compartment laptop bags and any bags larger than 16-by-16-by-eight-inches will not be allowed.

The Twins will continue to have express lanes available for those who arrive without a bag. Season ticket holders will still have access to sweet spot lanes at Gates 6 and 34.

Gate 34 will also continue to house a dedicated CLEAR lane, available to fans with a pre-existing membership or who sign up for a free CLEAR sports membership at Target Field.
