• Major leagues push all clubs to add safety netting


    NEW YORK: Major League Baseball officials recommended Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) that all 30 clubs should lengthen the safety netting at ballparks to better protect spectators from foul balls and broken bats that can go into field-level seats. The idea is to better protect those sitting closest to the action from the field between the near ends of the dugouts and within 70 feet of home plate, although it falls short of extending above the sub field-level areas where players sit when not involved in the game.
