Over the past few decades, prefabricated steel buildings have become increasingly popular. There are dozens of reasons for this: they can be ordered to any size, they don’t wear down over the years as easily as wood buildings, they are easy to add onto, and they can be used for a wide variety of purposes. Browsing the internet, you can catch a glimpse of some of the things people use these types of buildings for. One of the most interesting and exciting ideas I ran across recently was a baseball field inside a steel building.
Like I said before, metal buildings can be made to virtually any size you would like. They can be small, so you can house a few household items, like a lawnmower, trailer, etc., or they can be incredibly large so you can hold sporting events. One of the things I came across recently was a baseball field. The building that the people were using for the field was incredibly large. It looked like it was several hundred feet long a couple hundred feet wide. They had either used a building without a floor or added dirt to the inside of the building to replicate an infield. They had all four bases, the foul lines drawn in, and even a scoreboard on the wall. Who knows if the scoreboard was plugged in or not, but you would have to assume that indeed it was. I can’t imagine how awesome it must be to play a baseball game inside the building. I played growing up, and although I do not really enjoy watching baseball (there is too much time in between the action), I love playing it. Playing it inside would bring a whole new level to it. The building wasn’t as large as a dome where some professional teams play, so if you hit a pop fly it would probably go off of the ceiling. The same would happen for a home run. It would make it incredibly exciting, because you wouldn’t know where the ball was going to come down.
This idea that people had led me to think of the various other things you could use prefabricated metal buildings for. One idea that immediately jumped to mind was a gymnastic arena. They would work great because you could order one of the size you needed. There would be plenty of space to perform all of the acrobatic skills that people use to perform gymnastics. One of the things that always scares me when little kids are practicing is that they might hit one another in the head with a mistimed cartwheel. There generally is not a ton of space at your typical recreation center, which means that kids are flying all over the place. A steel building would provide ample space for everyone to do their tricks without the fear of running into one another. If I am ever in a position that I can afford ordering a steel building, I am going to do something of this nature with mine. I can’t wait to have my indoor baseball field.
