Custom Baseball Field Barrier Netting and High Strength Backstop Nets

Baseball backstop netting is a critical safety feature on any baseball field. It helps to protect spectators from flying balls and bats, and it also helps to prevent injuries to players. There are many benefits to using stadium backstop netting, including:

  • Increased safety: Baseball backstop netting helps to keep spectators safe from flying balls and bats. This is especially important for young children and families who may not be as aware of the risks of being hit by a ball.
  • Reduced injuries: Baseball backstop nets can also help to reduce injuries to players. By preventing balls from flying out of the field of play, baseball backstop nets can help to reduce the risk of players being hit by balls.
  • Improved property protection: Baseball barrier netting can also improve property protection. By blocking errant balls, barrier nets help protect buildings, cars, and concession areas by the field.
  • Reduced maintenance: Baseball barrier netting is relatively low-maintenance. It does not require much cleaning or repairs, and it can withstand the elements for many years.

If you are looking for a way to increase safety, reduce injuries, and improve property protection at your baseball field, baseball backstop netting is a great option.

At we specialize in the supply of baseball barrier nets and backstop nets, and can outfit your field or stadium with the safety netting you need. Most any sizing or dimensions can be ordered, which maximizes the effectiveness and attractiveness of the netting installation on-site. In addition to the customization of the net sizes, there are many instances in which our clients require additional ropes to be run throughout the inner area of the mesh as well. Rope rib-lines such as these are typically used to make some further attachments of the netting to wires, poles, or wind supports that are already built into the installation structure. This allows for the baseball netting to be properly secured to the installation structure, as well as enhancing the strength and durability of the net.

Baseball Backstop Nets for Municipal Field Location

The series of netting panels displayed below shows a great example of custom backstop nets built and shipped for a municipal baseball field installation in Oregon. The overall job needed 12 netting panels, each constructed from the #36 X 1-3/4″ twisted-knotted nylon netting, with 5/16″ polyester rope bordered perimeter edges, as well as interior rope rib-lines running vertically. A couple of the nets also needed horizontal rope rib-lines as well, as specified by our customer. These nets were built to a variety of different heights and widths, with the interior rib-lines spaced at specific interval locations in order to line-up with the installation framing that was constructed at the baseball field site. These nets were produced and ready to ship out in about 3 weeks from the order being placed, and shipped directly to the baseball field via LTL truck shipment.
