As he addressed the issue of safety netting Thursday, Commissioner Rob Manfred acknowledged that MLB has collected data on fan injuries for 3-4 years, but said, "We collect all sorts of data that we don't release to the public. That's sort of the way people do business in America. We make no secret of fan incidents, usually the public is there when it happens." He went on to say netting extensions have made ballparks safer, because fewer balls are going into the stands, but that he can't be any more precise than that. "It's undeniable the ball is coming off the bat faster than it used to," Manfred said, adding, "I think we have been responsive to the concerns raised by that change."

Contacted by ESPN's Outside the Lines about the White Sox' plans to extend netting to the foul poles at Guaranteed Rate Field, Chicago native Erwin Goldbloom said, "Go Sox! I hope it's a start — somebody had to do it and I hope now the rest of teams will follow." Goldbloom's wife Linda died in August after a foul ball into the loge, above netting behind home plate, struck her in the head at Dodger Stadium. His daughter Jana Brody said Tuesday, "I'm thrilled they are taking action...the only other thing I want is to raise it behind the backstop, but I'll take it."

On Tuesday's news that Guaranteed Rate Field is to extend netting to the foul poles, fan safety advocate Andy Zlotnick, who suffered eye & facial injuries on a 2011 foul ball at Yankee Stadium, told ESPN's Outside the Lines, "Injured fans across the country really cheered the White Sox on today for stepping up to the plate and doing the right thing for fan safety." He added, "The pressure is now on MLB and the owners to follow — this will push them all to get to the right place."
