What is Baseball’s Impact on Shelter Works?

To celebrate the start of the 2013 baseball season, the team at Shelter Works made a video to explore the impact of baseball on Shelter Works buildings. It just proves again that if it was built by Shelter Works, it was Built for Life! We hope you enjoy!


Man: Not a mark on it. Very good, John. Very good.

John: Good enough.

Man: What was more impressive is how the building sustained no damage, not a mark. Like I said, if it was built by Shelter Works, it’s built for life.

Woman: Yeah, but, wait a second, John’s no Sandy Koufax here. He’s not throwing 120 miles an hour…

Dana: It’s not 120 miles an hour.

Woman: …or anything like that. What I’d like to know is…let’s try something else. What…do you think if we had a baseball bat and we hit the building, would it damage it?

John: Oh yeah. Oh yeah.

Dana: I think it could be…

Man: I don’t think it would put a dent in it.

John: For sure, for sure. Oh yeah.

Man: Nope.

John: Let’s go. Let’s go.

Man: All right, let’s go. All right, put it to the test.

Woman: Okay.

Man: Let’s see what we’ve got.

Woman: Whoa.

Dana: Wow.

John: Ouch.

Woman: Let me try.

Man: Here you go. Batter, batter, batter, swing, batter, batter, batter…Ooh! All right. Nothing!

Dana: Let me try, I wanna try.

Man: Nothing!

Dana: That’s pretty good.

Man: See what you can do. Come on now. Give it a whack. Oh, come on! You can do better than that.

Dana: What would happen if you hit a steel building with a bat?

Man: It would certainly dent it and then maybe chip the paint and it might be rusting shortly thereafter.

Dana: Okay. All right.

Man: Like this. Back up now.

Dana: All right, all right. Oh and then that’s gonna rust?

Man: Absolutely.

Dana: So, fiberglass is tougher than steel.

Man: In many ways.

Dana: I wish more people knew how amazing these buildings are.

Man: Well Dana, if we build them, they will come.
