The Milwaukee Brewers are moving forward with a plan meant to keep more fans safe from foul balls that have injured numerous fans at their games and others across Major League Baseball.
The team announced Friday it would extend the netting to protect fans sitting in more field level sections of Miller Park for the 2020 season.
The netting will now go 105 feet more on the first base side, between sections 108 and 109 – about halfway between first base and the right field foul pole.
On the third base side, it will extend 145 feet to between sections 128 and 129. That is beyond the halfway mark between third base and the left field foul pole.
The extended netting will be in place for the exhibition games between the Brewers and Kansas City Royals starting on Monday, March 23, as well as regular season games.
