Let's face it, no one wants to get hit by a foul ball during a night out at Lansing's Cooley Law School stadium.

I've been going to Lansing Lugnuts baseball games for quite some time now and have yet to be hit by a foul ball by any batter, and I'm planning on not being hit with any game ball.

According to WILX, Cooley Law School Stadium is looking to better protect its fans during games, by extending its protective netting that sits just behind home plate.

The proposed changes would extend the netting to the end of each foul line. Currently, the netting is only in the infield area.

This isn't the first time the stadium has upgraded its equipment, the netting was also extended in 2018 to the end of each dugout.

The stadium does already comply with safety standards as of January 2020, but officials say they just want to be more cautious.

I think this is a good thing, it may even bring in more Lugnut fans because of the expansion of safety netting.
