Mets Extend Netting

The New York Mets have become the tenth major league team to extend safety netting.  Recent legislation introduced in the New York City Council appears to be the motivating factor in the team’s decision to extend netting to the far ends of the camera wells, which is some 30 feet beyond the dugouts.  Additional eight-foot high netting will run from the camera wells further down the first and third base lines.  In announcing these changes, team officials stated that “Fan safety continues to be our top priority and using this technology will offer state-of-the-art protection for our fans while minimizing the impact on their viewing experience.”  These upgrades at Citi Field will be made during the upcoming All-Star break.
