Angel Stadium Extended Netting Announced

Los Angeles Angels of AnaheimThe Los Angeles Angels is the latest MLB team to announce fan-safety upgrades for 2018, as an Angel Stadium extended netting plan will be unveiled closer to the season opener.

The announcement from the team on Twitter didn’t share a lot of details save one important one: the Angel Stadium extended netting will extend to the end of the dugouts, a plan currently recommended by Major League Baseball. Several teams, including the Minnesota Twins, are surpassing that recommendation.

Over the last several months–after a young girl was severely struck by a foul at Yankee Stadium in September–many Major League Baseball teams have announced plans to extend their protective netting in 2018. Among the clubs that have already unveiled plans to extend protective netting at their ballparks include the Boston Red SoxDetroit TigersChicago CubsCincinnati RedsSan Diego PadresBaltimore OriolesColorado RockiesSeattle MarinersNew York Yankees, Cleveland Indians, Minnesota Twins and Milwaukee Brewers. In addition, extended netting has been announced for spring-training games at Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium, Steinbrenner Field, Hammond Stadium and LECOM Park. We expect that every MLB team will announce plans for extended netting before the season starts.
