Aces Extending Greater Nevada Field Protective Netting

Reno Aces

The Reno Aces (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) will extend protective netting to the foul poles at Greater Nevada Field, with the project to be completed prior to the 2020 season.

“Safety is our top priority and our fans have asked us to do more,” Aces President Eric Edelstein said. “It’s our mission to be the premier affordable family fun entertainment option in Northern Nevada and adding protective netting to the entire seating bowl area maintains that goal. We’re confident these nets will protect ALL of our fans and enhance the gameday experience. Every action we take is with our fans and community first.”

The club has selected Ultra Cross Netting by Sportsfield Specialties for installation. Ultra Cross Netting by Sportsfield Specialties is used by 23 Major League clubs including both 2019 World Series participants; the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals.

“These nets are trusted at ballparks that host the game’s best, that’s a category we want to be a part of,” Aces General Manager Emily Jaenson said.

Local construction company, Rapid Construction, will assist Sportsfield Specialties in the installation of the netting.

The braided and knotless Ultra Cross Netting, made of ultra-high weight polyethylene fiber, is the strongest configuration available at Sportsfield Specialties and offers 95% spectator visibility. The netting also offers protection against UV damage.
