The Cleburne Railroaders (independent; American Association) have extended the protective netting at The Depot at Cleburne Station, completing the project ahead of their current six-game homestand.
The new netting extends down the first and third base lines to cover the berm seating, which is a popular area for small children to play during the game. Preexisting netting already covered the seating sections behind home plate and behind both dugouts.
“The Railroaders have always tried to give fans the best experience possible when they come to The Depot, and safety is a huge part of that,” Railroaders president John Junker said. “This new extended netting helps ensure that everyone can focus on enjoying the game safely, without compromising the great views that our ballpark has to offer.”
Nets of Texas installed the netting, a knotted Dyneema net that has been double UV-treated for superior strength and durability. Additionally, canopy netting has also been installed to cover the Kids Zone area beyond the right field fence.
