MLB and all 30 Teams
United States of America

As of the beginning of the 2018 MLB season, all 30 teams extended the netting to the edges of the dugouts. While this is a positive step in the right direction, it is not sufficient. Players are getting stronger, baseballs are flying faster, distractions are everywhere. It is simply not safe and people of all ages are getting severely injured. The solution is simple: extend the nets. Extending nets to the foul poles will greatly reduce the likelihood of a fan being injured due to the inability to react in time to a ball coming at them at over 90 mph.

We, the undersigned, call on Major League Baseball and all 30 teams to extend protective netting to the foul poles.
