Interesting, even for a non-baseball believer.

I presume that the warehouse will have another life as a grandstand? Built perhaps by a baseball fan with an eye to the future?

Actually the warehouse predates the ball park by about 100 years.

Instead of razing the old buildings when the ball park was built in 1992, much of the existing architecture was incorporated into the locale's aesthetic. The bldg is used for the baseball team's administrative offices and for functions, I believe.
