The Padres will be extending protective netting to the end of each dugout at Petco Park for the 2018 season. As of now Major League Baseball “recommends” that teams install netting from dugout to dugout behind home plate, which is around 70 feet.

SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Padres have announced details of their extended netting project, which begins today at Petco Park.

Protective netting at the ballpark will be extended to the end of Section 116 in left field and Section 115 in right field, proactively surpassing the guidelines issued by Major League Baseball.  The netting will reach a maximum height of 24-feet before it tapers down along the foul lines.  It will be attached to the top of both dugouts, as well as the tops of the walls along the warning track.

“The security and well-being of our fans is our number one priority at Petco Park,” said Padres Executive Chairman Ron Fowler and General Partner Peter Seidler.  “We feel the new netting design drastically improves the safety of our patrons, while the state-of-the-art materials will have a minimal effect on the fan experience as it pertains to the view of the field and sightlines of our ballpark.”

The Padres’ most coveted free agent pickup of the offseason made his spring training debut Tuesday, going 1-for-3 with an RBI single against the Seattle Mariners’ split squad.

Padres preferred parking is available adjacent to Petco Park . On weekends, special events and other large crowd games, guests should plan on utilizing public transportation or parking facilities a short walk from the ballpark.

SAN DIEGO — The Padres Monday announced details of the team’s effort to cover more of Petco Park with protective netting aimed at making the ballpark safer for spectators.

During the project, all of the protective netting will be replaced with Promats Athletics 1.2 mm Field Green Ultra Cross® Knotless Dyneema® Netting, a lightweight, open mesh that is dyed green to meet MLB’s recommendation to reduce visible impact on those seated behind the netting.

Padres Members will be invited to view the new netting, along with their 2018 season ticket seat locations, during a high school baseball game between La Costa Canyon High School and Vista High School on Friday, March 23 at Petco Park.
