NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — The Norfolk Tides have expanded the safety netting at Harbor Park.
The Tides announced on June 27 that the netting would expand to the end of both the home and visitor’s side dugouts.
“Fan safety is our first priority at Harbor Park, and this extended netting will help keep even more fans protected from any objects that leave the field of play” said Tides General Manager Joe Gregory in a press release Wednesday. “We are confident that this upgrade will provide fans with an extra sense of security while still allowing for an unobstructed view of the action on the field.”
All of the park’s existing netting has been replaced by Promats Athletics’ Ultra Cross Braided Dyneema Netting, which has been installed in more than 50 major and minor league stadiums, including Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
