Years ago, people went to baseball games to WATCH the games.
Now more than ever, sports ever people go to sports games to just float around with friends and business clients. The focus isn't on the game, but closing a business deal.
While in basketball or football this wouldn't be as big of a deal, this is a huge deal in baseball. Foul balls fly in the stands on a regular as high speeds.
The league has caught wind of this issue, and has decided to add netting near the ground level to protect players.
"Clubs are encouraged to implement or maintain netting ... that shields from line drive foul balls all field-level seats that are located between the near ends of both dugouts ... and within 70 feet of home plate."
The saying by fans right now is "take me out to the ballgame, but don't take me out on a stretcher."
This is something that is long overdue from the MLB, but the problem still stands: Are the people in the best seats truly there to enjoy the game?
