Installing more netting and safety precautions has been a topic every single season in Major League Baseball, because there is bound to be a handful of people that end up getting severely injured from an arrant foul ball or flying bat coming at a high rate of speed during any given game.

Aldermen Tuesday urged the Cubs and White Sox to "be at the forefront of efforts to ensure the continued safe enjoyment of this storied pastime" by exceeding Major League Baseball safety and netting standards to protect fans in the stands. "It's too late for me but Major League Baseball must fix this after the playoffs, not next year, but now", Loos said. Cubs spokesman Julian Green issued a statement on the lawsuit, saying, "The safety of our fans is paramount to a great game day experience", Green said. He said he can still see out of his right eye but has had problems adjusting to light and shadows.
