Mets Increase Protective Netting At Citi Field

Mets fans heading to Citi Field after the All-Star Game will take their seats behind additional protective netting designed to improve safety.

The existing 30-foot netting behind home plate will be extended beyond the dugouts to the end of the infield, and eight-foot high netting will be installed to the outfield during the All-Star break, to more than triple the space covered by the existing netting.

Team officials say the new; state-of-the-art netting is 97 per cent invisible, increasing transparency for fans.
