The portion of the article of particular interest to us here at SportaFence is the section on Fencing. In this excerpt from the article Paul Steinbach covers some of the basics to consider when choosing an outfield fence:
“Perhaps in no other organized sport is fencing as integral to the ground rules of the game as baseball and softball, with plan in the form of batted balls and errant throws ofteh transcending a field’s fair territory. The essential fencing of nearly any diamond is its backstop, curtailing passed balls and pop fouls from its position behind home plate. From there fencing may extend to and in front of team benches or dugouts on opposite sides of the field. Fencing may completely surround the baselines and outfield, and on most levels of organized play, it does.
“But there’s more to the common chain-link fence than meets the eye. The mesh “fabric” – as it’s called – may contain both knuckles and barbs. Knucled chain link features metal wire that has been folded over to form a relative smooth edge along the length of the fence. A barbed edge exhibits the Y-shaped intersections of wire that have been clipped without being folded over. It is these edges that can pose safety hazards, and often a fence is delivered with both types of edge.”
