Sox Look To 'Dramatic' Expansion Of Protective Netting

Red Sox President and CEO Sam Kennedy announced over the weekend that the team would engage in a "dramatic" expansion of fan-protective netting at Fenway Park. Beginning this coming season, the netting at Fenway will extend beyond both dugouts. This new extension exceeds the requirements laid down my Major League Baseball (netting from behind home plate up to each dugout). During the 2015 season, a female fan suffered a traumatic brain injury at Fenway Park—when she was struck by a flying shard of a broken bat.
