The South Bend Silver Hawks have implemented a new stadium policy—bag checks. Starting Friday, May 3, all bags will be checked upon entering Coveleski Regional Stadium.
This new policy at the Cove calls for purses, diaper bags, backpacks and all carrying bags to be searched.
In a press release issued Friday afternoon, Team President Joe Hart said “it is our mission to provide our fans with a thrilling experience each and every time they come to the Cove.” He added, “with the recent tragedy that took place in Boston, we realized that you could never be too safe or too cautious so we determined this is the best policy to ensure our fans have a safe and enjoyable experience.
Food and beverages are still not permitted into the stadium, however food for infants and other special dietary needs are permitted.
