Protective Netting Installed In Compliance With MLB Recommendations
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds, in accordance with recommendations issued by Major League Baseball, have extended the protective netting behind home plate to cover the seating area behind both dugouts at First Tennessee Park for the 2016 season.
First Tennessee Park has been outfitted with new protective nets – at the same height as the already-existing backstop behind home plate — that run the length of each dugout.
“Based on the proximity of our Premium seats to the playing field, the reaction time to a foul ball directly behind the dugouts is almost non-existent, and fan safety is of utmost importance to us,” said Garry Arthur, Sounds COO & General Manager.
