'I hope you enjoyed America’s favorite pastime, because by the end of this year nearly every Major League Baseball (MLB) team will be using facial recognition.
Last year, there were only nine MLB teams using CLEAR’s facial recognition to spy on fans. But all of that is about to change.
This year, the MLB has decided to go full-blown TSA and put facial recognition cameras in 23 stadiums, which is just seven shy of the entire league.
According to a Business Wire article, the MLB plans to scan the faces of millions of baseball fans.
The partnership will develop a first-of-its-kind collaboration of emerging technologies from CLEAR and Tickets.com, ultimately allowing millions of fans to use biometrics to enter ballparks, eliminating the need to present a paper or mobile ticket. With CLEAR, you are your ticket.
The article also warned that CLEAR’s “broader roll-out” plan, means they will be in every stadium by the end of this season.
With CLEAR becoming the “official biometric identity partner” of the MLB, the future of spying on sports fans and their families will only get worse.
