The Toronto Blue Jays are joining many other MLB teams in extending their protective netting at their ballpark.

Rogers Centre will get the extension further down the baselines for the start of the 2020 MLB season. However, the Jays are not just doing it for regular season games, they are also extending the netting at the team’s spring-training facility in Dunedin, Florida as well.

"Fan safety is paramount to the Blue Jays and we believe that fans should feel protected and secure during our games," Blue Jays executive vice president of business operations Andrew Miller said in a statement. "Extending the protective netting at Rogers Centre and Dunedin Stadium is a clear next step for our organization and one that reflects our team's values."

While the team makes the commitment to the safety of their fans in both stadiums, the exact configuration of the netting remains to be finalized.

Major League Baseball made it mandatory that all 30 teams extend the netting at least part way down the baselines prior to the 2018 season due to several scary incidents involving fans being hit by baseballs and bats. Toronto complied with the mandate and netting at the Rogers Centre goes to the end of both dugouts.

However, there have been more injuries to fans around the league, including dome high-profile incidents this year. That includes one involving a two-year old child in Houston. Because of these injuries there have been even more and louder calls for new mandates to extend the netting even further down the lines in all 30 parks.

The Chicago White Sox became the first team to extend the netting from one foul pole to the other foul pole in June, which made its debut following the All-Star break. Many other teams have announced plans to do the same.
