Opening Day at Busch Stadium brings new security features and changes fans need to be aware of. Items some fans are used to bringing with them to the park will not be allowed in on Sunday or the rest of the season.

Joe Abernathy, vice president of stadium operations, told KAIT’s sister station, KFVS, fans can no longer bring in outside cups.

Backpacks are also prohibited for the 2017 season.
