Fan Poll on Safety Netting

An HBO Real Sports/Marist Poll of 1,297 adults released on April 16, 2016, found that a majority (54%) of those surveyed think that MLB should expand protective netting along field level seating.  The survey, conducted with the Marist College Center for Sports Communication, reported that “50% of those fans would rather sit behind netting when close to the field, although only 41% of male baseball fans would compared to 61% of women.”  The preference for protective netting rises significantly when children are a factor.  A whopping 77% would prefer to sit behind netting if they are attending a game with small children.  The complete poll results can be found at
