How do you feel about the Pirates’ decision to extend protective netting at PNC Park?
On Thursday, Pittsburgh Pirates President Frank Coonelly announced that the team plans to extend the netting at PNC Park to or near the foul poles.
“Fan safety at PNC Park is of paramount importance,” Coonelly said in a statement. “We have once again engaged our netting experts to re-evaluate our protective netting design and to immediately develop a plan to extend the protective netting at PNC Park farther down the baselines.
But after the announcement, fan reaction was mixed. So at the Trib, we are looking to get a better representation on how paying customers really feel about the netting.
The Pirates join the Chicago White Sox and Washington Nationals who have announced plans to extend safety netting down to both foul poles amid concerns about fan safety. Dodgers President and CEO Stan Kasten has said his team will extend the netting at Dodger Stadium.
