The Northwest Arkansas Naturals (Class AA; Texas League) will extend protective netting at Arvest Ballpark, with plans to complete installation by their home opener on April 16.
“The safety and wellbeing of our fans, associates and players has always been our top priority and we remain committed to providing a comfortable and enjoyable atmosphere at all our events,” said Justin Cole, Vice President/General Manager of the Northwest Arkansas Naturals. “Expanding the protective netting at Arvest Ballpark allows us to better meet the needs and expectations of today’s fans.”
Arvest Ballpark’s protective netting, which will now run from Sections 101-120 and maintain a minimum of 30′ in height throughout, will be made of a low-gauge material that is designed to have minimal effect on the viewing of Naturals’ baseball while providing an additional level of comfort for fans.
An installation date for the new netting is currently being finalized.
