Protective Netting To Be Extended Further At Fenway

The Red Sox announced that they will further extend protective netting at Fenway Park next season. Currently, the netting extends to the "inner edge" of each dugout. It will now be extended about 140 feet down each baseline. Specifically, a team spokesperson said, netting will now go "from Field Box 79 on the third base side to the Canvas Alley area on the first base side, around Field Box 9". Generally, fans seem to have accepted the netting—trading off any new obstructions for the dramatically increased safety.
