With the White Sox extending safety netting to the foul poles & the O's reportedly to take similar action for 2020, a former star for both said he's all for it MLB-wide. "It's a long time coming as guys are bigger, stronger and the ball is coming off their bats quicker and you have babies in the front row," new Hall of Famer Harold Baines told ESPN in Cooperstown. "They (fans) should be protected — in Japan, it's already like that." Washington also lengthened its netting & 4 other teams say they plan to do so. But Cleveland, where a foul past 1st base on Sun. struck a toddler — who was sent to the hospital — and Tampa Bay, where a woman was injured on a foul to LF Fri. & a man was OK after a thrown bat near 3rd base hit him on Sat., have not announced any new netting plans.

This week, Cleveland and the Browns hosted the NFL's Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Ambassador Summit, which empowers students to eat healthy and be active. Several Browns, including WR Jarvis Landry, participated in the summit, talking with students at various sites around the city, then later playing flag football games with them inside FirstEnergy Stadium. Said Landry: "When I was their age, I didn't have this, I didn't have the opportunity to be around professional athletes. So to have the opportunity to be here is part of the reason I love doing this type of stuff, because I didn't really have it. To be there for them is something special."
