CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Charlotte Knights announced Thursday that they will be extending the safety netting at BB&T Ballpark ahead of the 2020 baseball season.
In 2016, the team extended its safety net around parts of the stands in an effort to block fans from being hit by anything during games. There have been multiple scary situations at ballparks across the country. As a result, teams have been keeping a close eye on how to prevent balls and bats from putting fans in danger.
The team's netting ran to the end of each dugout during the 2019 season. Several major league teams, including the Washington Nationals, extended their safety nets from foul pole to foul pole.
