Fan safety is a hot subject & 2 MLB teams are debuting extended netting Mon. It's the 12th anniv. of the death of a baseball man concerned about danger in the stands. Longtime minor league player Mike Coolbaugh, who reached the majors & then coached in the minors, always made sure his wife & young children were seated behind netting at his games, his widow Mandy says. Coolbaugh died 7/22/07 at age 35 when a foul liner struck him in the neck as he coached 1B. MLB then mandated helmets for 1B & 3B coaches, despite strong opposition. And Mandy Coolbaugh became an outspoken advocate for measures to protect players and fans, including netting.
