Under the new configuration, the netting will be 30 feet high at the ends of each dugout, and taper down each foul line to the ends of Section 3 in right field, and FL11 in left field.
The state-of-the-art netting is 30 percent thinner than traditional netting, utilizing Dyneema fiber with a knotless "Ultra Cross" intersection supplied by Promats Athletics. It not only provides fans protection, but also is designed to blend into the playing surface.
To enhance the game experience, portions of the netting will be adjustable, providing access points that allow fans to get autographs and interact with the players and coaches before each game. The access points will be located along the entire length of both dugouts, plus four areas down the first-base line and three down the third-base line.
The Marlins' installation of the additional netting exceeds Major League Baseball's Fan Safety Recommendations, with the organization having already been in compliance with Major League Baseball's guidelines pertaining to protective netting.
