John Baier, Evolv’s vice president of sports, marked the occasion by stating, “Like baseball fans across the country, we celebrate Opening Day and the start of baseball in 2024. We greatly appreciate the trust that our customers place in Evolv to deliver fan-friendly security screening.” On the subject of fan-friendliness, Baier added, “We extend a special acknowledgement to the Pittsburgh Pirates and PNC Park, which was recently ranked by USA Today as the country’s #1 ballpark. We’re proud to be the Pirates’ Official Screening Partner and contribute to their exceptional fan experience.”
