LAKEWOOD, NJ - The BlueClaws will extend protective netting at FirstEnergy Park for the 2020 season, the team announced today.

The new netting, which remains 36-feet high, will cover the entirety of the reserve seating sections. A recent expansion brought netting protection in front of all seats between the far end of the first base dugout and the far end of the third base dugout (Sections 104-112).
Now, netting will cover Sections 101 - 103 and 113 - 115 in addition to the previously covered sections.
"Fan safety at FirstEnergy Park is unquestionably our number one priority," said BlueClaws Team President Joe Ricciutti. "This netting expansion adds an additional safety measure for fans in the reserve seating bowl."
Installation on the netting, which has 95% see-through visibility, is slated to begin in February and will be completed long before the team's first home game on April 16th.
The BlueClaws are the Jersey Shore's top stop for affordable, family entertainment. 2020 ticket packages and group outings are currently on sale by calling 732-901-7000 option 3 or online at BlueClaws.com.
The team will begin their 20th season at FirstEnergy Park with Opening Night, presented by Jenkinson's Boardwalk, on Thursday, April 16th.
