The 9/11 Bag Rules Are Back For The Playoffs

It wasn't too long ago that we lauded the Yankees for finally relaxing their ridiculous post-9/11 bag rules that banned anything other than a purse or diaper bag from entering the grounds of Yankee Stadium. As Marc Carig reports, the Yankees are once again changing their tune, just in time for the playoffs.

This is definitely frustrating for fans, especially those heading straight to the game from work (the games start at 6:07 PM). However, the Yankees are likely responding to warnings from the FBI a couple of weeks ago regarding vague terror threats to stadiums. It is better to be safe then sorry, and the local bowling alleys that offer bag check will probably be happy, but isn't this some form of the terrorists winning?
