Twins to extend protective netting at Target Field

Cleveland Indians expanding safety netting at Progressive Field

Ten MLB teams already had taken the initiative prior to that incident, and four others (Reds, Rockies, Padres and Mariners) announced plans to expand their protective netting in the wake of that event. The netting will also be extended along the Dugout Box seating area down the foul lines.

Jim Folk, the team's vice president of ballpark operations, says the changes balance the interactivity of the game with the top priority of safety.

The protective nets will stretch to the far ends of the dugouts from Section 164 down the third-base line to Section 140 down the first-base line.

Both the Indians and Twins, in their separate announcements on Wednesday, said they'd use the latest available technology to minimize the obstruction of views of the playing field.

The Twins will also continue to implement a "communication plan to warn fans about the dangers posed by batted balls and bats entering the stands and the need to pay attention to the action on the field during each at-bat".

But few teams were quick to adopt that suggestion, reasonable and necessary as it was-when the young girl was struck at Yankee Stadium this year, just 11 of 30 teams had netting that met such guidelines.

A New York TV station reported at the time the child stayed in the hospital overnight for observation, but that she was expected to be okay.

At Target Field, the height of the existing netting will be raised above the dugout from seven feet to nine feet.
