Phillies to Extend Netting Along Entire Length of Foul Territory by 2020 Season

By Matt Rappa, Sports Talk Philly editor

The Phillies have made their first offseason extension, and it doesn't involve a player, coach, or manager.

On Tuesday, the organization announced their plans to NBC10 that they will extend safety netting at Citizens Bank Park along the entire length of foul territory (Section 107 through Section 140) by Opening Day of the 2020 season

The Phillies were among the early "pioneers" to extend their protective netting, from the backstop to the edges of the dugouts, following the 2016 season.

Now, three years later, they are one of 13 teams who have, or plan, to extend safety netting to the foul poles by next season.
