Dodgers Announce Netting Extension in Wake of Fan Hit by Baseball
06/24/2019 10:22pm

The Los Angeles Dodgers said Monday that they plan to extend netting to protect fans following a girl getting hit in the head by a baseball during Sundays win at Dodger Stadium.The Dodgers released a statement Monday evening: Fan safety is of the utmost importance to the Dodgers and during the offseason, we began the process of studying how the netting at Dodger Stadium could be configured to provide better protection for our fans. Once this study is completed, the team will implement the recommended changes and extend the netting at Dodger Stadium. The team will provide more information on the project timeline and scope when available. Fan Runs Onto Field to Hug Dodgers Cody Bellinger The Orange County Register first reported that the team was taking action in the wake of a girl getting hit in the head by a line drive off Cody Bellingers bat.Surely we will be expanding netting, Dodgers CEO Stan Casten told the OC Register. I dont know yet the final configuration. Obviously there are some different choices to be made and different products which each come with their own set of challenges. Dashcam Captures a Confrontation Between SUV Driver and Motorcyclists Casten added, For sure, something is going to be done. As for the exact timing, I dont know that yet.The fan struck by the ball appeared to be OK but was taken to the hospital as a precaution, the Dodgers said on Sunday. Aspiring Monsters Welcome at Dark Harbor Tryouts Last season, a 79-year-old woman died after being hit in the head by a foul ball.Linda Goldbloom was celebrating her 79th birthday and 59th wedding anniversary to her husband at a game when she was struck by a foul ball.Prior to that fatal incident, all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums had already extended protective netting to reach at least until the end of both dugouts.Photo Credit: Getty Images

Fan Runs Onto Field to Hug Dodgers' Cody Bellinger
06/24/2019 8:05am

It was worth it.Those were the final words of a young female Dodger fan as she was being carried off the field by security at Dodger Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Click Here or Email Your Photos to iseenbcla.com The young fan is reportedly a 14-year-old girl who jumped from the stands and onto to the field in the top of the eighth inning just to give Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger a hug.At first I heard the crowd cheering, and I looked to my left and saw this chick recording with her phone. Running, said Bellinger of the moment in question. She came up to me and said I want a hug. She gave me a hug, and then as she gave me a hug a security guard tackled her.According to the Los Angeles Dodgers Fan Code of Conduct, any fan that goes onto the field of play is considered a violation that will result in Immediate ejection and/or arrest and prosecution.Bellinger knows the rules well, so after the girl was tackled he told her:You know youre going to jailAccording to Bellinger, she replied:Yeah, I know. It was worth it.Bellinger went on to say that despite the fact that she believed it was worth it, her parentswho will likely have to pay her fineprobably wouldnt agree with her.Bellinger thought the whole ordeal was funny, and cautioned any future fans out there who are contemplating running on to the field during a game to give him a hug:I dont think my hugs are that special to be honest. So for future reference, my hugs arent that great, so dont rush me on the field.The incident with the young Bellinger fan wasnt the only oddity on the day. Besides the Dodgers making MLB history with their third consecutive win via walk-off home run by a rookie, a different fan was hit in the head by a foul ball earlier in the game.Ironically, the foul ball also came off the bat of Bellinger in the bottom of the first inning, and it struck the young female fan who was sitting in the front row of the field section down the first-base line.It was weird. Its the first time I think Ive hit a fan, said Bellinger. I saw it literally hit her face. That was tough. I just tried to regroup. Im sure it was tough for everyone.The young fan was visibly shaken up, but remained in her seat shortly after the sharp line drive struck her. Dodgers security gave her an ice pack, and Bellinger checked on her between innings.I went over the next half inning just to make sure she was alright, he said. She said she was alright. She gave me a thumbs up. Obviously, its a scary situation.Despite giving Bellinger the thumbs up, the fan later left the game and was taken to a nearby hospital for precautionary reasons. She is expected to make a full recovery.Last year, a 79-year-old woman was killed after being hit in the head by a foul ball at Dodger Stadium. In May, a young girl was struck in the head by a line drive off the bat of Chicago Cubs outfielder Albert Almora Jr. in Houston.The incidents have reignited the discussions around Major League Baseball to extend the safety netting in the lower seats. Many players and teams believe extending the safety netting all the way to the foul pole in all 30 stadiums is the next step towards fan safety.I would assume, that would be a smart decision, said Bellinger of extending the netting. Just to protect those people in the front row who dont have enough reaction time. Its a scary situation.NOTE: If you cant see the tweets embedded in the story, scroll down and select View on NBC Southern California below.Photo Credit: Getty Images This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.
