Cleveland Indians expanding safety netting at Progressive Field

The Indians today announced they will be installing expanded safety netting around the field before next season.

The netting now will extend from Section 164 down the third-base line to Section 140 down the first-base line.

The AL Central champions are prioritizing fan safety while using the latest technology to "minimize the intrusion on the live-game experience" at the ballpark.

The Twins already were contemplating expanding protected areas at Target Field when a young fan was hit in the face with a line drive foul ball in September during a Twins-Yankees game in NY.

It's important to remember, however, that a higher megapixel camera doesn't always necessarily mean better performance. Instead of the dual rear cameras, Huawei will be offering triple cameras on the rear of the P11 smartphones.

The new netting is also being touted as state of the art, with thin strands and a knotless intersection to deliver a minimally obtrusive viewing experience.

Major League Baseball does not require safety netting at ballparks.

In 2016 the Twins extended netting from the interior end of the dugouts to the far end.

Following the September incident in New York, Commissioner Rob Manfred said there was still no timetable to require the protective netting, in part because different stadium designs pose a hurdle to creating a league-wide mandate, according to the New York Daily News.
