Starting Tuesday, the Minnesota Twins begin an extended stay at Target Field.

And some security changes will come with the nine-game home stand.

The changes were announced earlier this month to help increase efficiency in the security process and, ultimately, get more fans into the ballpark.

Items including cellphones, keys and wallets—which fans, in the past, were required to remove from their person before passing through security—are now allowed to be kept in fans' pockets.

Officials said Target Field's detectors have been updated to know the differences between common items and dangerous items.

A second policy is set to be applied on July 5, allowing fans to bring in single-compartment bags, purses and drawstring bags while entering Target Field. Officials said only allowing single-compartment bags into Target Field will cut down on the time staff spends looking through bags.
