Today the Dodgers announced that their planned stadium safety upgrades had been implemented while the team has been on the road. The netting, which has been a source of concern this season, has now been extended an additional 124 feet through both baselines.
Moreover, the netting behind home plate and both dugouts now stands 33 feet tall.
This enhancement was originally announced in June after baseball had experienced a rash of unfortunate incidents where fans were struck by line drives off the bat at various ballparks. Now Dodger Stadium is proud to say that it can provide a safer experience for fans.
