All MLB teams to extend protective netting to far ends of dugouts

All 30 major league ballparks will have expanded protective netting that reaches to at least the far ends of each dugout by opening day.

The league officially recommended extended netting prior to the 2016 season, but Manfred said in 2017 it could not unilaterally implement changes due to design variances in the 30 ballparks.

"Providing baseball fans with a variety of seating options when they come to the ballpark, including seats behind protective netting, is important", Manfred said via a statement.

Major League Baseball issued recommendations for protective netting or screens in December 2015, encouraging teams to have it in place between the ends of the dugouts closest to home plate. Stay up to date with all the local news, weather and sports as well as live newscasts and events as they happen. With both team's announcements, all 30 teams have now made a decision to extend the netting beyond the minimum requirements set in place by the Major League Baseball.

At Yankee Stadium, players were visibly shaken when a foul ball off the bat of Todd Frazier struck a toddler and shattered bones in her face. The expanded netting will be installed during the offseason and will be in place by Opening Day 2018, when the Reds take on the Washington Nationals at 4:10 p.m. ET.
