With heavy hitters sending balls out of play, Brick Township will install a wall of netting at Drum Point Road.
“In years of late, there’s been lot of power hitters on softball, they’ve been close to hitting the Pop Warner players in the head, so they’ve requested this netting,” Business Administrator Scott Pezarras said.
Two adjacent fields have had some safety concerns, with softball players hitting long range into the football field area.
The netting will be between softball field and practice and turf for football. The Brick Township Council agreed to go out to bid on the work at its Dec. 17 meeting.
