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.
