Giants to install additional netting at AT&T Park http://www.sfgate.com/giants/article/Giants-to-install-additional-netting-at-AT-T-Park-6867426.php .....When Commissioner Rob Manfred issued his netting directive in December, Giants executives initially balked at the notion. There have been no gravely serious foul ball-related injuries in the park’s history, and it is among the most intimate major-league settings. Manfred sent notice to all teams, and the way it was worded, it sounded like a recommendation, as if the teams could act as they pleased. Behind the scenes, it was a mandate. Teams were not given a choice, and all 30 — including the A’s, who were told no adjustments are required — will be in compliance by Opening Day..... I've long thought maple bats were the most dangerous thing in baseball,.. but they still have em,.. mark my words somebody is gonna be seriously injured by a broken maple bat. I guess extra netting isn't a bad idea,.. the last Giants game I went to, a young gal got clocked in the side of the head by a foul ball,.. stuck around for a couple innings after, but she left in the 6th inning. I hunger for a foul ball souvenir when I'm at a game though, I'll have to scope out a new strategic seat I guess.
