The Milwaukee Brewers are the latest MLB team to announce extended netting for the 2018 season, as Miller Park will have protection to the far end of the dugout.
Currently, the netting at Miller Park extends only to the near end of the dugout. While the Brewers have not announced a specific plan, the team did announce in a press statement the netting will be extended to the far end of the dugouts. Through 2017 10 teams had extended netting to the far ends of the dugouts, and since the end of the season several teams (Detroit Tigers, Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, San Diego Padres, Baltimore Orioles, Colorado Rockies, Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees) announced plans to extend netting. We expect more announcements of extended netting in coming weeks.
The new extension project will be completed in time for the 2018 Brewers Home Opener on Monday, April 2.
