If there is an American man alive who does not have fond childhood memories of heading out to the ball field with his dad, he wishes he had that memory.
Whether that ball field is a diamond, a gridiron, a court, or even a soccer field, there is nothing the same as sharing family time together bonding over sports.
Commercial sports facilities promote family togetherness. When we were young, all of these might have been outside in the sunshine, and of course some still are; even so, nowadays commercial sports facilities are totally indoors. It’s incredible to have whole football fields under your roof, right? But even such humongous commercial sports facilities are not vital to the mission of family togetherness. Even simpler, smaller commercial sports facilities can help kids and parents and even extended family members bond. Our city has added a couple of commercial sports facilities, and it is a rare Saturday indeed when the parking lot is not crammed with eager players and spectators. Smart commercial sports facilities will also leave room in their parking lots for gathering before the big game. When I was younger and able to do more than I can now, my favorite commercial sports facility was a complex in the middle of a gigantic park. Inside this commercial sports facility was an indoor soccer field, indoor racquetball courts, batting cages, a weightlifting area, and basketball courts. Anything you could want was there. My favorite spot was the racquetball area. It was great fun for me to play against my older, stronger brothers and try really hard to beat them at the game. My brother Patrick preferred the batting cages, and my brother Kevin loved the tennis courts inside the commercial sports facility because he could play rain or shine.
