Alerting the media Brody speaks out encouraging changes for fan safety in Major League Baseball. Major and Minor League Baseball’s recent mandated net extension policy is an outcome of using her voice for good. Improving fan safety awareness is the goal of this memoir with a message. Combining published articles, quotes, and personal perspectives the story unfolds over three years.
