In another sweep of teams extending their safety netting, the Cleveland Indians have joined the party, and will extend the netting past the dugouts.
This is a move that is often praised by the MLB, but scorned by the very fans it is there to protect.
2017 was another tough year for close-seat-injuries, including one girl who was severely injured by a foul ball this season.
The Indians aren’t alone however, the Minnesota Twins have also joined in in extending their already deep safety netting.
While the biggest push-back is from the fans themselves, and while there is no ACTUAL requirement by the MLB to have such deep netting – many teams are going along with it anyway.
