If you go to any sporting event around this is nothing new. Gone are the days of hauling in backpacks, huge purses and diaper bags. Blame it on the crazy world we live in and the safety of the public. Blame it on people who sneak in food. Just know this is a thing here in Amarillo.

Just know you need a clear bag when you make your trip into Downtown Amarillo. Or don't bring a bag in at all. It's not an unreasonable request. Heck, they even sell them in their gift shop.

You can even go around town and buy one. I am sure Academy, Target or Walmart carries them too. This clear bag has to not be bigger than 12" x 6" x 12". If you get to the gate and you are not in compliance don't be surprised if you get turned away to make the trek back to your car. You have been warned.

If you have a medically necessary bag they will make an exception. Just know your bag will be searched and tagged. Yes, you can bring in a small clutch bag as long as it is about the size of your hand and without a handle. They would still like you to have a clear bag. So let's just follow the rules and make for a great night at the ballpark.
