The protective netting at Fenway Park is being extended beyond the dugouts for the start of the 2018 season. The new netting system will extend from Field Box Section 79 to Field Box Section 9, expanded from an area previously covering Field Box Section 61 to Field Box Section 29. It will be positioned with the same consistent height as the existing system, which stands at approximately 12 feet, 8 inches above the playing field.
While the expanded netting system will offer some additional protection, the club continues to encourage all fans to be vigilant during games and to be on the lookout for any objects leaving the field of play, including bats and bat fragments, and thrown or batted balls; ticket holders assume all risk of injury.
