More technology at the ball park

Clear, the company that lets people skip the TSA pre-check lines at airports, has announced it is teaming up with Major League Baseball and Tickets.com to introduce biometric ticketing at participating ballparks in 2019. A pilot program will arrive at select venues later this season.

I just received an envelope of paper tickets for the concert series I attend. I love the idea of not having to keep track of some paper tickets for a few months, but there were problems with the tickets that were issued to me. I wonder whether it will be as easy to discover and correct problems in a biometric system.
