All major league stadiums, Minute Maid Park has protective nets for bad balls. The family of the hurt girl was a part of where that protective mesh ends.

& # 39; It's going to happen, & # 39; said Maddon. & # 39; I mean, there's no doubt about it, it's going to happen. I have been doing this for a while and I have seen different situations like this. I'll be on board with something like that. & # 39;

Following Major League Baseball's recommendations, all 30 teams had extended their protective nets to at least the ends of the dugouts at the start of the 2018 season after several fans were injured in 2017 by dirty balls.

In 2017, a boy was hit in the head at Yankee Stadium in May by a part of a broken bat, and in July that same year another fan behind the first dugout of the base was hit by a hump of 105 mph. In September a young girl was injured by another 105 mph error and was admitted to the hospital.

A woman died last August after being hit in the head by a foul ball in Dodger's stadium.

The Chicago White Sox plans to become the first team to extend the protective fabric to dirty poles after a female fan was hit in June.
