11 days after a line drive hit a young girl in the stands at Yankee Stadium, the Yankees announced Sunday that they intend to extend protective netting at their ballparks in the offseason.

In a statement, the team said it plans to extend the netting at the Stadium and Steinbrenner Field, where the Yankees play their Spring Training games, for the 2018 season.

Club officials said their netting will go beyond Major League Baseball (MLB) guidelines for netting at ballparks, but the details are not yet known.

The Bronx Bombers have faced pressure after the girl, who was sitting in the Stadium's lower deck behind third base, was hit during a Sept. 20 Yankees game by a foul ball that was 105 mph off Todd Frazier's bat.

MLB issued recommendations for protective netting or screens in December 2015, encouraging teams to have it in place between the ends of the dugouts closest to home plate.

The New York Mets went beyond that at midseason this year, and Cincinnati, Colorado, Detroit, and San Diego have said they intend to expand protective netting before next season. San Francisco said it anticipates doing the same.

The regular season ends Sunday, but the Yankees will have at last one more home game without netting, as they host the American League Wild Card Game on Tuesday night.
