All MLB ballparks will have expanded netting in 2018

All MLB ballparks will have expanded netting in 2018

All 30 Major League Baseball teams will have protective netting extended beyond the minimum requirements in 2018. "Major League Clubs are constantly evaluating the coverage and design of their ballpark", said Commissioner Robert Manfred.

Major League Baseball issued recommendations for protective netting or screens in December 2015, encouraging teams to have it in place between the ends of the dugouts closest to home plate.

The netting will be in place by Opening Day.

An MLB spokesman said that Wednesday's announcements made it unneccesary for the commissioner to issue a league-wide mandate, according to The New York Times.

The Cincinnati Reds plan to install additional netting at Great American Ball Park for the 2018 season, extending new netting to the end of each dugout and replacing the existing netting behind home plate.

The netting is to help prevent fans being hit by foul balls or bats that fly into the stands.

At Yankee Stadium, players were visibly shaken when a foul ball off the bat of Todd Frazier struck a toddler and shattered bones in her face.

We're expanding the protective netting at both Tropicana Field and Charlotte Sports Park this season.

In recent weeks, the number of Major League Baseball teams to say they would extend the protective netting at their stadiums increased to 27 with the Los Angeles Angels, Toronto Blue Jays, Baltimore Orioles, Miami Marlins and Chicago White Sox all jumping on board.
