Safety nets first priority at Kauffman



July 18, 2019 - 10:02 AM

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Royals are planning and expecting to extend the protective netting around Kauffman Stadium to better protect fans, perhaps as soon as this season.

They began the process after a 2-year-old girl sustained a fractured skull from a foul ball in Houston in late May. The efforts take on an amplified urgency after a fan was hit and injured by a foul ball at Kauffman Stadium over the weekend.

Earlier this month, Royals vice president of publicity Toby Cook said the team has “no plans at this time to change the netting in the near future.”
