Rollins College softball player urges the importance of improvements in sports facilities. This article points out the important fact that field security is often neglected in these renovations. Softball and Baseball fields are often the brunt of vandalism and are often used by pedestrians. Erin Crawford states: "However, when there is $3 million being poured into the baseball programs, yet there is not even a security camera installed at our park, it is impossible not to feel dejected and disposable." When it comes to sports, safety should always be a priority. We offer sports netting products for baseball, golf, spectator safety, and general sports barriers as well as security gates that could be used to protect your equipment room or dugout area.
