The Minnesota Twins will stretch the protective netting behind home plate at Target Field to the far ends of each dugout, the team announced.

This move begins with the start of the next season and follows Major League Baseball’s recommendations issued last week in an effort to protect fans who are increasingly distracted from watching the action and being struck by foul balls.

The extension of the netting is especially important at Target Field, as the distance from home plate to lower-level seats there is shorter than any in the majors, according to the Twins.
