Netting Enhancements for 2018
As part of our commitment to fan safety, the Detroit Tigers and Lakeland Flying Tigers make it a priority to create a safe and secure environment at Publix Field. In 2018, the Tigers will introduce state-of-the-art upgrades and extensions to the protective netting system.
These netting enhancements, extending from sections 100-115, will place Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium among the best facilities in terms of fan safety not only in the Minor Leagues, but across all of baseball.
Additional improvement comes in the type of netting featured at Publix Field. All netting, whether being replaced from previous years or newly installed for 2018, will be some of the thinnest and strongest used in ballparks worldwide. The existing netting had a width of 2.16mm, while the new material measures in at just 1.2mm. This netting provides for maximum spectator visibility and safety.
These enhancements result in both significantly improved sightlines for those seats previously behind netting, and they provide unobtrusive safety for those further down the baselines.
