With the White Sox extending safety netting to the foul poles & the O's reportedly to take similar action for 2020, a former star for both said he's all for it MLB-wide. "It's a long time coming as guys are bigger, stronger and the ball is coming off their bats quicker and you have babies in the front row," new Hall of Famer Harold Baines told ESPN in Cooperstown. "They (fans) should be protected — in Japan, it's already like that." Washington also lengthened its netting & 4 other teams say they plan to do so. But Cleveland, where a foul past 1st base on Sun. struck a toddler — who was sent to the hospital — and Tampa Bay, where a woman was injured on a foul to LF Fri. & a man was OK after a thrown bat near 3rd base hit him on Sat., have not announced any new netting plans.

A day after a foul ball hit a woman in the head in Tropicana Field's LF stands, a thrown bat soared over netting on the third-base side and struck a man in the back Sat. as he shielded his girlfriend, according to the Tampa Bay Times. The man - who'd come from Chicago for the White Sox-Rays series - wasn't hurt, had a pine tar stain on his shirt & gave the bat to a teenager nearby. On Mon., the White Sox are to become MLB's first team to have safety netting extending to the foul poles.

The Tampa Bay Times reported that a foul ball bounced off a barrier in the LF stands at Tropicana Field Friday and struck a woman on the side of her forehead. She was seen holding an ice pack to her head and being taken in a wheelchair for medical attention. 7 MLB teams - the Rays are not among them - have installed or committed to extended safety netting since a May 29 Houston episode when a toddler was hit in the head and injured. As several other fans have been hurt since on balls to the head, pressure has increased for all 30 teams to extend netting well beyond the far ends of the dugouts — the de facto minimum length since the start of the 2018 season.
