Today, the Dodgers made the announcement that extended netting will be ready for when the team returns to Dodger Stadium on Monday, Sept. 2.

The team previously replaced the netting behind home plate and above both dugouts with a 33-foot net, an increase of eight feet. This week, the 33-foot netting was extended an additional 124 feet down the baselines, from both dugouts to the elbow bend in front of the baseline seats.

“The decisions to both raise and extend the nets at Dodger Stadium were made after extensive data analysis and consultation with both players and fans,” Stan Kasten, the Dodgers President & CEO said. “We think these extensions to the netting greatly enhance fan safety while also keeping Dodger Stadium the welcoming and comfortable place it has always been.”
